Good point, thanks. I'd forgotten that gmirror stores its metadata
at the end of the drive instead of at the beginning as ccd does.
Nevertheless, I'd be interested in what people's experiences have
been with ataraid(4), particularly since it's more flexible in
terms of putting multiple operating systems on different
partitions of the same mirror.
