   Already does that.

yeah there is code in both bootblk & ofwboot to try to make booting
from raid work but somewhere something doesn't work still.  it's been
over a year since i last attempted to diagnose it.  i do hope to look
at this again later this year but not for a couple of months yet.

i'm using a boot disk with ofwboot & netbsd plus "raidctl -A root"
to get the real root chosen.
