" This is akin to Phil's suggestion, except that the number of replicas

" larger size of 4mb each replica is still negligible on today's
" cavernous disks.

you don't have to accept the default 4M size; you can specify how
large you want it.  when i set it up on my system, i allocated a 1-cyl
slice on each disk and jiggered the math so that 3 dbs would fit.

i agree though; when you're talking about 100s of Gb per disk, 4M is
