I'm hoping caching ends up being as successful as the raid456
unification where we can have a dm or md interface in front of some
common infrastructure.  The inertia for md is to keep it close to all
the recent software raid advancements, the inertia for dm is also
clear, the inertia for something brand new... not very clear.
