When using raid10 btrfs on four disks of two different sizes (two of one 
size two of another) does btrfs know to match the similarly sized disks 
in a mirrored pair?

I guess a corallary would be: will btrfs stripe over the mirrored pairs 
until the smaller pair fills up and then continue writing to the larger 

Also, if raid10 is used with, say, 3 100gb drives and 1 250gb drive 
would the 250gb drive be able to fail without data loss?  Could it be 
fully utilized?  How about with a 500gb drive?
