[rescue] Small RAID array setup

I had an idea a bit ago... why not just RAID disks...

New HD's with two spindles in the drive that counter-rotate *(like the 
original drives from the 60's)

The spindles mesh together... i.e. one platter on one... then platter 
on the other... then back


and the rw heads are on the sides of the drive... one on each 


indicated by the pipe position.

This drive can either be configured for fast access as one stripe or 
redundancy via internal mirroring.

Then you can stripe this set of mirrors and be done with things.
