Yeah, that came out the day I finally got tired of waiting for it to ship
and went with my plan B.  Timing is everything.  :^)

I'll be testing the Zevo solution and see how it works with RAIDZ2 on Mac
Pros (after I figure out how many drives I can cram in there -- wonder if
the PS will drive 8x2.5" drives as well as the 4 3.5" drives). Thanks for
the pointer.
