  Nonono! That is not, what I am after. I am simply going to move /data to
RAID, since it needs to be reliable. It would be nice if it was fast, too,
but it is not necessary, reliability is. My /home is backupped to tape,
/usr et al. can be reinstalled in a matter of hours (/etc is backupped,
too) but /data contains tens of gigabytes of results of scientific
simulations... rather nasty to back those up.
