Yes and no.  In the concatencated case, where space is the only concern, 
yes.  One could tack another disk onto the ccd, grow the filesystem, and 
we're off.  However, in the interleaved case, adding another disk is 
going to cause the interleave information to be re-calculated, so a newfs 
will be necessary anyway.

I'm not trying to be negative about the ccd's capabilities (in fact, 
quite the opposite!), but I'm just trying to be realistic about what it 
can do, and clear up any possible misconception about what it is.  (From 
the paragraph below I see that Leo understands this, but I've seen other 
messages on this subject fly by that lead me to believe that others do not.)

Isn't it the truth...

Filesystem  1024-blocks     Used    Avail Capacity  Mounted on
/dev/sd0f         49479    46747      258    99%    /usr

*sigh* once upon a time, that was enough space for /usr... :-)
