No freely available RAID implementation that is "much lighter-weight"
than RAIDframe exists, at least not so far as I can discover.

There is VINUM, but I think it's even more complex (it does full logical
volume handling, at least in FreeBSD), and in my experience it is quite
a bit less robust (slight mis-configurations panic the kernel).
