[Dirvish] Hot Swap SATA

I use hot-swap PATA drives through a USB2 interface for dirvish 
backup drives, and used to directly hot-swap PATA on 2.4.xx kernels.
This means that some of my backups are "protected by air gap" from
disasters like power supply failure or hackers.

I understand that SATA drive hot swap is supported by the kernel,
if appropriate commands are run before and after the swap. 

Is anyone actually doing this?  If not, would anyone like to try?
