I'm curious about this too, but the gap between now and being able to order SSDs on non-co-lo boxes means that we're not thinking about that too much just yet.

The place that would be most relevant would be if we were considering bypassing the file system altogether and moving to doing raw-I/O on the disk itself and tried to account for disk geometry, which would be less useful with an SSD. But in practice that's not on the near term radar anyway.
