That is good to hear, at least the current OS pruning is working 
properly.. :-)

If I recall correctly, if a parent device (da1) has children (da1s1) the 
algorithm will only list the parent of it satisfies a stricter set of 
criteria (seeing if it has additional available space/ filesystems). I 
will check on that though and make sure. I will probably just need to 
tighten up the restrictions on parent devices even further.
