In fact, I was hoping to get away with fewer states an object can be in 
and to simplify the state machine.

For example, I don't really see a need for fourteen different subdisk 
states.  Of course, you had a reason for putting them in, and if we want 
to be really clever, we probably need them.  But IMHO some states and 
state changes are not very intuitive from a user perspective.

But I'll have a closer look at it.
