Tom may not see any use for READ LONG or WRITE LONG commands, but many of us 
use them for diagnostic purposes and not just for building mirror volumes. I 
agree with Gene that the patent issues raised by Tom beg more questions than 
they answer. What will be Digital's policy regarding patented techniques for 
mirrored volumes?
