I've been following this thread, sort of, and have a question. 

the new gmirror code and manpage suggest using /etc/rc.early and
/etc/rc.local to change the balance algorithm to allow system dumps
on gmirror'd devices.

Could someone more familiar with rcNG re-write the suggestions taking
the above into account?
