Ensure fast-POST operations are used on objects
The defacto swift implementation has a feature called "fast-POSTs", which is an optimization that allows POST operations on files to be performed by updating metadata on additional .meta files. The default is to treat all POST opreations as a COPY operation. Since this gluster-swift code stores all metadata directly on the original object file, there is no need to use an inefficient operation such as COPY.
