It's going to take a while to improve the layouts it picks.  There are some
missing policies we still need.

But it's worth experimenting with different ways of creating the device.
E.g. Starting with a shorter device and extending it; or starting with a
striped device and turning it into a mirror; specifying which PVs to use on the
command line.

There's normally a way to get the layout you want, but if all else fails,
you can fix it up by hand (backup, edit, restore).
