I have backups of the data that can't be reproduced. I just don't have room 
for some of the larger files (CD ISO's, DVD rips, etc). It would be 
inconvenient to lose the data but far from catastrophic.

One goal of this exercise is to get some redundancy, but at least as 
important are the goals of learning more about something I haven't used 
before (graid3) and getting a larger volume on a limited budget.

Besides, trickery is where the fun comes in. :)

I appreciate the response, though. It's a point I might have raised myself.
