Sorry, I wasnt suggesting that you should always mirror
the indiviudual partititons - just I happen to do that where
I am mixing ZFS and gmirror. Obviosuly you dont want to create
lots of little mirrors if you dont have to. But even with
one mirror, you can mirror a big partiton covering the whole
drive, and then carve that up with bsdlabel. No need to ever mirror
the actual raw discs, and it works with GPT.
