the price spread isn't that big of a deal.

a 6-drive raid-6 gives you 4x space, while a 6 drive raid-10 gives you 
3X.    not that big of a deal.

an 8-drive RAID-6 gives you 6X space, while an 8-drive RAID-10 gives you 
4x space.   not much bigger of a gap.

raid sets really shouldn't be much bigger than about 8 drives, 
anyways.   rebuild times for a 12 drive raid6 would be astronomical.
