Not too familiar with Vinum as yet, but I'll let you know when I have a
better idea of it's features.
One question I have now though - I've successfully created a concatenated
volume with two plexes. This volume was formatted, and now I've extended
it within vinum.
Is there a workaround that will let me extend the filesystem using
growfs(8) on 5.0-STABLE? Is it fixed in CURRENT?
