As I understand it, the "power of two" thing is only about maximum
efficiency, and other values can work without wasting space (they'll
just be a bit slower).  So, for example, with 12 disks you would be
able to do 10+2 and get 83% space efficiency.  Xavier's the expert,
though, so it's probably best to let him clarify.
