I have all three, which I can do. I did a send-pr thing with the vnd
code but since it is broken I'm not sure it is worth enhancing it with
more features. The ccd device is working like a charm, I have 256G on 6
seperate CCD devices running. I've yet to try multiple disks/partitions,
striping and so on however. I will do after the holidays are past.

I can place the bits on my own FTP if it helps, the send-pr stuff kinda
became a mess, but maybe it was my doing :)

Checking the sources for vnd on FreeBSD, they appear to have mirroring
as well. If that something we should have too? Is it handled elsewhere?
Should I merge them in, if I can?
