GEOM is pretty cool alright :)  Thanks for the links I've never really
looked into how it was architected I just new a lot of cool stuff has been
done with it.  I wish the modules where better documented at times but
it's still nice.

One downside I just noted is that it cannot be used for the root
filesystem.  Which means I can't use it because I do the "one big
partition" thing.  I tend to run myself out of space so often it makes it
easier than trying to get everything to fit "just right"
