	My bad. I just took a quick look at the pool & wasn't paying any attention to 
the distribution.

	There's no question that it's a completely different interface, but I don't 
think it's any more confusing than raidtools. Starting with no previous 
experience with either, as I did, I think learning mdadm is no more difficult 
to learn than raidtools and, perhaps, easier as everything you need is rolled 
up into one program.
