I appreciate that people get cross about the use of RAID on the pi, it's CPU and USB based IO are poor performance fits, but set that aside for a moment.

I'm creating a sandbox environment that loosely mirrors the configurations of servers I use. These servers are running RAID10 on sets of SATA disks. Failures of RAID sets (and practicing the recoveries thereof) can easily be modeled on the pi using £3 USB flash drives in a hub. But the lack of a RAID10 module confuses me. I can presumably compile one from the sources, but I'm curious - is there a reason the RAID modules aren't more comprehensive? Or is it just left out because the maintainers don't see the need?
