Scenario:

 Customer currently has 13 6607 drives in 5052 top hat leaving 3 slots open. 
These are one RAID set of 8 and one of 5.  Filling the three remaining slots 
with
6607's yields 12.5 GB storage which the customer says is not enough.  Removing
one 6607 (leaving an 8 set and a 4 set) then adding 4 6613s would yield
3*8.58-4.19 or 21.55GB BUT requires a third RAID set.   While expense to replace
two more leaving a set of 10 4GB drives is not all that much the available space
on the system means removing stuff from the system to have enough space to do
that and they wish to avoid that.
