Ben can answer this better than I can, but I do remember seeing the
plans for allowing second level backups.
This, I assume, would mean that the primary backup system keeps a
complete copy on yet another server.
I don't think it can be called userland RAID but the effect is the same.
Note: I remember reading the intention to implement this in the future,
but right now I can't find a link for reference, sorry.
