Interesting. Are you saying it is possible for an operator to corrupt a
checked in version such that you can't use the main repository to get
the file? If so, is it more likely to happen with bdb or FSFS?

I tend to throw out the RAID, and use a nightly disk mirror on the
second
disk. The far likelier cause of file loss is operator error, not disk
failure in my experience, and it's a lot easier to recover the files
from a
read-only repository.
