Just a "headsup" that -current now supports kernel core dumps to 
RAID 1 sets.  Like any regular swap partition, if your swap is
on RAID 1 and is large enough, you don't need a separate dump device
to be configured.  In the unfortunate event that your kernel crashes
and you have a RAID 1 set configured as your dump device, the dumping 
and savecore operations now work with the raid(4) device.

(And no, there are no plans to support anything other than 
RAID 1 sets. :) )
