I rather like the separation between file system and raid devices. It
gives more choice and makes both components simpler. Now I can choose
raid1+ext2, raid5+ext3, swap+raid0 and reiser+device. 

I would rather like not to loose those options. Otherwise it would be
like combining "uniq" & "sort", because you could make one case work
