another question that keeps popping up here is this: why isnt there anything like a parity translator that - in combination with striping - takes n+x subvolumes and writes n blocks plus x copies of parity information? wouldn't this make sense for making striping more robust against failures? am i misunderstanding basic concepts again or would a somewhat RAID-like behaviour make it easier to balance robustness against failures against space used?
