There have been several requests for the "simple" script file.
Portions of its implementation are somewhat specific to our
installation (like the use of the rc shell).  I'm including it inline
here - not sure where else to put it -- perhaps in the Documentation:

#!/usr/bin/rc

tableboth ='0 devblksz cow devread 0 devwrite devbmapw 0'
devsize = `{sfdisk -s $1}

fn wipeoutdev{
       bmapsize = `{echo $devsize / 512 /2 |bc}
       echo dd 'if=/dev/zero' 'of='^$1 'count='^$bmapsize 'bs=512'
       dd 'if=/dev/zero' 'of='^$1 'count='^$bmapsize 'bs=512'
}

fn escapedev{
   echo $1|sed 's/\//\\\//g'
}


fn setcow{
       devread = `{escapedev $1}
       devwrite = `{escapedev $2}
       devbmapw = `{escapedev $3}
       tableset = `{echo $tableboth|sed -r 's/devread/'^$devread^'/'}
       tableset = `{echo $tableset|sed -r 's/devwrite/'^$devwrite^'/'}
       tableset = `{echo $tableset|sed -r 's/devbmapw/'^$devbmapw^'/'}
       devblksz = `{expr $devsize '*' 2}
       tableset = `{echo $tableset|sed -r 's/devblksz/'^$devblksz^'/'}
       echo trying to set $tableset
       echo $tableset > /tmp/tableset
       echo trying to dmsetup create $4
       dmsetup create $4 << EOF
$tableset
EOF
       dmsetup table
}

if(! ~ $#* 4){
       echo usage: newcow origdev destdev bmapdest namecow
       exit 1
}

namecow=$4
origdev=$1
wipeoutdev $2
setcow $1 $2 $3 $namecow
