I'd like to know too. It doesn't on my Etch box.

I believe that a single process's reads always come from one of the
disks. You can have multiple readers using multiple disks, so it
still provides a benefit.

You could try using RAID-10 on 2 disks (this will work for Linux
md's implementation) to see if that will stripe it for even one
process's reads.
