" UFS itself can't deal with a filesystem larger than 16Tbytes, and the

what's the reasoning, on an ultra?  sun4m/sun4d have a hard 2G limit
and sun4c won't even go that high unless you have a late-model obp
[>2.6?  remember the biggest optional disks in teh ss2 were sun0424s]
but afaik there's no reason to scrimp on an ultra.  my u1 has /, /usr,
and /opt in one 4G slice, and it's currently 70% full.
