Yeah, but you'd need to do some manual configuration there anyway.
Adding `yum install dmraid` to that isn't really a massive burden.

I could have another drive in my new system that uses ZFS, but I don't
think we should add zfs-fuse to @core just so any random hard drive
with Fedora installed that I happen to want to pop in there can read
it off the bat.

I love that I can put a drive with Fedora on it into any system and
have it boot, but my expectations in this regard end with being able
to log in.  I do not expect any random new hardware I have in that new
system to just magically work without a little prodding, beyond the
hardware that *always* just magically works, of course.  Asking for
more is madness.
