Lack of ataraid means no more arX devices, right? I'd say it's not fatal
for HEAD, but it is for a -STABLE branch.

It doesn't seem to me that sysinstall supports gmirror or gstripe, so
even if they could be better, currently I think many users still use
ataraid for simple installations with mirrored disks.
