:Spindle sync is an anachronism these days; asynchronous behaviour 
:(write-behind in particular) is all the rage.  You'd be hard-pressed to 
:find drives that even support it anymore.

    Woa!  Say what?  I think you are totally incorrect here Mike.
    Spindle sync is not an anachronism.  You can't get good RAID{0,2,3,4,5}
    performance without it - for reading OR writing.  It doesn't matter 
    so much for RAID{1,10},  but it matters a whole lot for something like
    RAID-5 where the difference between a spindle-synced read or write
    and a non-spindle-synched read or write can be upwards of 35%.
