Space usage

Hi folks,

What's the overhead in riak in terms of space usage? So, what's  
overhead of a (1, 1, 1) vs. e.g., (3, 2, 2) vs. etc. in terms of  
riak's overhead on a per-node, per-bucket, and per-key bases?  How  
does adding fields to a document and links affect the space overhead?

I'm just trying to get a sense of how much data can be put into riak  
based systems so looking for relatively round numbers rather than and  
OCD analysis. :-)
