One other thing comes to mind. I want a very robus, fast rockl solid 
It will be a file- email and webserver mostly.

Instead of using two ZFS mirrors I could also go for gmirror (I'm not 
familiar with it, but it's been around for quite some time so it should 
be very stable). I don't get the data integrity that way, but my files 
would be safe, no?

Also, using gmirror I could use "normal" BSD UFS filesystems and normal 
swap files devided across all disks?
Or am I wrong, thinking this way.

I'm not into fancy stuff; it has to be robust, fast and safe.
