How much space is required?  Is there anything which outlines what it does
and how it hangs together?  I understand if official documentation is
lacking before it's formally released, but I'd be interested in have a look
at whatever is out there about it ...

Slow, under-powered hosts and 200GB+ mirrored filesystems are not a happy
mix if they hiccup, so journalling would be very useful ...
