I've documented my experiences in migrating from a 3-way RAIDZ1 to a
6-way RAIDZ2 at http://bugs.au.freebsd.org/dokuwiki/doku.php/zfsraid

Note that, even for a home system, backups are worthwhile.  In my
case, I backup onto a 2TB disk in an eSATA enclosure.  That's
currently (just) adequate but I'll soon need to identify data that I
can leave off that backup.
