Someone with a 4 drive raid5 on a hardware controller with 750GB SATA
drives.  Hence the only drive in the system is a 2.25TB device with
partitions and everything on it.  The root partition isn't very big,
but it's on a drive that is bigger than 2TB and hence needs something
other than a DOS partition table.

It doesn't take much with modern SATA drives to hit 2TB.  Given we can
get 1.5TB in a single drive, how many months before we can get 2TB in
a single disk.
