I was running this in a lab - worked really straight forward, without any noticeable issues & FCoE (as expected) behaved in the identical fashion as 'standard' FC.
Potentially your FCoE card on the filer side may act as a unified target (both for FC & NAS), but you need a switch supporting this (e.g. Nexus 5k) & ONTAP 8.0.1+

I believe the NetApp cables are : X1140A-R6-C or if you go for the Cisco cables (which are compatible - they have to be as they have fixed 10GbE copper SFP+ on the end) these are 'SFP-H10GB-CUxM' where 'x' is either 1, 3 or 5 depending on length of cable (in metres) required.
