I was envisioning a scenario where the entire solr home is on the old
volume that's going away.  If I were setting up a Solr install where the
large/fast storage was a separate filesystem, I would put the solr home
(or possibly even the entire install) under that mount point.  It would
be a lot easier than setting dataDir in for every core,
especially in a cloud install.

If the dataDir property is already in use to relocate index data, then
ADDREPLICA and DELETEREPLICA would be a great way to go.  I would not
expect most SolrCloud users to use that method.
