I’ve looked into this a bit further. It looks as though I'll need to 
create a new GELI partition on the new drive I add, and then add it to 
the ZFS pool. It'd need to be created with the same password/credentials 
as the other drives so it’s unencrypted with the same single password on 

Am I on the right track?
