gvinum up to snuff and stable enough to use? Is ccd still supported? What
would be your tool of choice?

gconcat, perhaps?

Gconcat looks mighty cool, will it be able to concat two devices that
already have existing filesystems on them and retain these? Say that ad0
has /usr and ad1 has /home will gconcat preserve these after concat:ing
ad0 with ad1?


No. The gmirror device will not have had a label written to describe where on the gmirror device those partitions exist. The data will still be there, but you'll have to do some magic on the gmirror label to describe where they are.
