The original roadmap was to transition to 4KB sectors in 2006,
coinciding with the Vista release.

Given how long this has taken (we're now talking ~2011 for GA) it may
very well be that the alignment knobs will be unused because everybody
will be using Vista or 7 by then.

That doesn't change the RAID array alignment problem, however. And we
need to prepare our partitioning tools to align correctly regardless.
