In my experience, vinum doesn't play well with GEOM, and gvinum isn't
anywhere near feature-complete. (I haven't looked at gvinum in a while;
it has probably improved greatly)

On the other hand, using GEOM itself has worked quite well; I use
gmirror to mirror /usr, and gconcat to string a collection of drives
together. Both have worked flawlessly since I set them up.
