 It turns out the 'fix' for this PR is not as obvious as it once seemed.
 RAIDframe *does* support RAID 1 with more than 2 components, but not in 
 the way one might expect.  Given six components: a, b, c, d, e, and f, 
 RAIDframe will create a 2-dimensional array, where the concatenation of 
   a, c, and e will be mirrored by the concatenation of b, d, and f.
 Where things are falling apart is with an odd number of components, 
 which now fails (until someone writes a n-way RAID 1 for RAIDframe).
