Actually, I suppose that on a little further thought, having mirrors as
the elements of a concat makes no particular less sense than having
mirrors be the elements of a stripe.  It's just that, well ... making a
concat makes little sense when you could make a stripe.  :)

(On the other hand, I suppose I can see using a concat if you have a
bunch of little odd-size chunks of disk that you want to make something
usable-size out of.)
