Is it possible to use the zfs copies property and put the disks individually 
into a pool?  That would give you 3TB (1.5 + 1 + .5) usable.


States that copies will be spread across disks.  But what I don't know (and 
don't have a test box to figure out) is if losing a disk still kills the whole 
pool in spite of having multiple copies of the data.  I have a sneaking 
suspicion is the pool would be toast.
