I believe it's fatal in long run. This would present significant 
challenge for users who rely on this functionality from upgrading from 
8.x to 9.0 later on. Especially for ones using striped disks and RAID5.

Therefore while it's no problem to have it in HEAD for now, but it will 
have to be addressed before the release.
