      Exactly right!

      But not a single comment on the solution that allows one to use RAID for
      the rootfs.

      So, is it worth continuing to support RAID in SlugOS? I ask because I'm
      currently struggling to fit stuff into the next SlugOS release, and
      something needs to be tossed...
