The only show-stopper I've run into has been my inability to get "gvinum" 
or "vinum" (my understanding is that "gvinum" has replaced "vinum" in 
5.4-STABLE and later) to work reliably under 5.4-RELEASE or 5.4-STABLE 
with RAID5 arrays.

Otherwise I can't tell any difference with respect to reliability.
