I'm currently using RELENG_5_2 with vinum (not gvinum). It's mirroring
everything except swap, which I vaguely recall might not have worked.

I believe with -CURRENT that vinum might not work right, and gvinum
might be the only option. Then again I could be wrong :-)

When 5.2 is released gvinum should be the default, and should hopefully
be in a finished state.
