Exactly! Looks like somebody has already taken the first step with the patch 
in 0.20! Yay!

RAID 5 gives you a high level of fault tolerance at the cost of
complexity and capacity. What Debabrata wants is a partially tolerant
setup, basically a file system that can span X disks, and when a disk
fails it only loses the files on the failed disk (i.e. 1/X of the data
if it were full). It's sort of in between RAID 0 and RAID 5: RAID 5
can have a single disk fail without any data loss, RAID 0 will lose
all data when a single disk fails, this hypothetical filesystem would
lose some but not all of the data if a disk fails.
