That's not my experience, Gene.  On the machine I set up on Thursday,
the /boot partition is a RAID-1 pair of mirrored partitions, all on its
own.  / is a separate, non-mirrored, partition on one of the disks.  

Maybe Disk Druid used to insist on /boot being part of /, but it doesn't
any more.

The only annoyance that DD still has for me is the arbitrary
rearrangement of partitions while I'm creating them.  I know it's mostly
just an aesthetic thing, but I want mirrored partitions (for example) to
be on the same cylinders on both disks in the mirror.  DD's constant
rearrangement makes that frustrating sometimes.
