Yes. It definitely would. I didn't know Yahoo uses MySQL.
What would be great for an interim is if a script could determine the space
available and suggest the settings to create the table. I see that by
setting RAID_CHUNKS you could tell how many directories MySQL should make.
The script could evenly distribute those directories and make the links and
directories for MySQL.

There isn't yet, no. It'd certainly be a nice addition, though,
