raid metadata version - grub-pc 1.99-27+deb7u1 (grub2 wheezy)

Back in 2011-sep-29 There was a problem booting from a raid partition with raid mdam metadata version 1.2. There was a workaround - but I'm trying to update some documentation for wheezy.

It looks like this has not been dealt with?

At issue is working with modern drives that are now larger than 2TB that require a gpt partition.

I think that currently this still is rather messy.

( Best work around - put your system on a pair of raided SSD using 0.90 metadata and boot off of these smaller drives - plant your large drive at /home Or where ever ).

Does anyone know if this has changed?

Government takes, by the threat of force,
