I know.  My intent was not to "cross" you, but I just wanted
to let him know that the link was only going to confuse him.

If it was another, intelligent hardware RAID solution, then
that link would have been viable.  All he needed was to get
the driver.

But I've only seen a few FRAID attempts and they are much
more involved than a SCSI module.  Or the vendor only
releases a kernel version-specific module.

Well, I wasn't even trying to assert that.  I know it seems I
have an "agenda" against FRAID, and I readily admit I do. 
But it's for good reasons.

I don't particularly like MD either, but MD is much, much
better than FRAID.
