I _really_ like the SX4 -- it gives the programmer full control over all aspects of RAID operation, while providing useful hardware acceleration where it's needed. And not getting in the way of the programmer, when it's not needed.

Does this mean that the hardware-accelerated RAID5-mode will be compatible with soft-RAID5? So that I am able to create a RAID5-array today and get all the goodies from hardware-support later without having to do the backup - recreate-array - restore dance?
