I don't dislike tw_cli.  At least, I like it much better than the old
afacli/aaccli, and I also like having 3dm2 send out email alerts in
addition to monitoring using tw_cli.  (I have a short nagios plugin I've
written to parse the tw_cli output, as well; it's not all that great,
but if others are interested I will send it offlist.)

I have seen some of the other issues you mentioned, which is one reason
I have been considering other vendors (and, I suppose, software RAID,
though less seriously).
