I thought there was an effort to merge the 'md-raid' capabilities into the device-mapper system so that it would be possible to manage raid and virtual-partitioning through LVM.
I searched and couldn't find the status of that implementation, and am not sure if it is independent of Neil's work or if the change already happened/is not going to happen and Neil's work is on the 'one true software raid' driver.
I am definitely interested in the hot-replace capability. Each time I upgrade the size of my raid, i get scared at having the array downgraded for so long while recomputing all data.
