On Fedora, for example, there already is a package called glusterfs-cli.

The output of our last working version of 'pvesm glusterfsscan <ip>' was 
a list of volumes which is exactly what 'gluster volume list' does.

I think this is reasonable as the volume names are required for a 
subsequent 'pvesm add glusterfs glustertest --server <ip> --volume 
<volname>'. cifsscan and nfsscan give the necessary information for a 
subsequent 'pvesm add' too.
