adding a RAID component

Short form: I'm trying to add a second drive for RAID mirroring -- how
do I do it?

Full story: I built a 5.0 system (per the instructions on the Wiki)
using just one drive of a RAID1 set.  I'd have added both components at
that time, but the machine I was working on didn't have a spare SATA

Anyway -- both disks are now in the proper machine.  I'm running from
raid0 on wd0e.  How do I persuade it to start using wd1 as the mirror

I have good console access but hitting the reset or power buttons are
difficult, so solutions that require nothing more than a 'shutdown -r'
are *strongly* preferred.

Here is the output of 'raidctl -s' and 'raidctl -G':

EMU# raidctl -s raid0
