Sorry for the late response:

The size increase is almost certainly related to changes made by
upstream (mdadm in sarge is version 1.9, we'll have 2.5.x in etch,
so there have been many changes, and many additions, like array
growing, RAID6 and RAID10 additions, etc etc.),

  sarge: -rwxr-xr-x  1 root root 90312 Jul  1 12:39 /sbin/mdadm
  sid: -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 161088 2006-11-09 01:47 /sbin/mdadm

and also copious amounts of documentation, FAQs, initramfs support
files, logcheck filters, helper scripts that I added.

Please do not send copies of list mail to me; I read the list!
