Anyone has any experience with geom_gate, geom_mirror features.

At work we are testing them and so far it looks promissing, but we are 
wondering how it behaves under heavy load. Would like to use it for 
replicating Maildir directories at an ISP in real time. 

Originally we were looking for DRBD in FreeBSD ( and 
searching for that we bumped into this other link which is how we found out 
about these geom capabilities
