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.
