I made some tests months ago, and I was socked to see that when a disk 
in LVM raid-1 broke, LVM provided no warning (as opposed to mdadm, that 
sends a message and logs to syslog).

Maybe it was bad configuration on my part, but it made us continue to 
use mdadm for softRAID and never look back.

BTW, we have mdadm deployed for production purposes in a pair of 
clusters with success. I think that with the level of expertise required 
to manage mdadm softRAID, relaying on the debian installer is good enough.
