The MD functionality has only just matured, how is this to be moved
forward into 2.4?  Is the MD functionality being rolled into LVM?  What
about duplication of effort.... I take it that large portions of code can
be shared?

I am told that LVM supports only linear and RAID0 which is hardly
useful... I appreciate that this is a work in progress but with 2.4 on the
horizon can we really justify dropping a well tested and functional system
for somthing without the major functionality of MD?

Perhaps somone can let me know how they see this moving forward?
