That would be news to me.  I'd love to hear it's true though.  When I made
the request there was excuse after excuse about how it would be difficult
and Sun always provided replacement drives of identical size, etc (although
there were people who responded who in fact had received drives from Sun of
different sizes in RMA).  I was hoping now that the braintrust had moved on
from Sun that they'd embrace what I consider a common-sense decision, but I
don't think it's happened.
