I prefer the "no user interface" approach. But then again, I'm biased.


Agreed -- a minimal implementation is needed first anyway. The BIOS of these proprietary RAID thingies typically provides the user interface.

On the other hand EVMS allowed me to make a minimal solution by taking care of the partitioning and the DM-API in the EVMS framework. The user interface is just an add-on that comes with the package. Right now its just a way for the user to get a "look its really there". If we do the RAID configuration and writeing the configuration blocks to the disks or not is in your hands. When we consider this to be to risky then lets just skip it.
