Like I said, nope.Sorry, my mistake.
What I meant was this .....
Many people are making their own "fusion drives" rather than buying the official drives from apple.
However the process of taking 2 drives (one ssd and one normal hd) is quite long and cumbersome. I wondered if 10.9 had an automated part in say disk utility that takes 2 drives and creates a "fusion" drive, if requested.

I don't think this is right (or it might just be out of date). Disk Utility from OS X 10.8.3 onwards will do this from an external drive (like a USB thumb drive). It will wipe both drives though to create the Fusion volume. Source (and it worked for me) - look at comment from OWC Ben M:Like I said, nope.
It would pretty much feel like you had a huge SSD. But it'll also depend on how full your drive is. It'll feel closer to a hard drive if you are using up all that space.So if I swiped out my disc drive and put in my stock 500gb hdd and did the terminal drive script and made it one drive, how would the overall speed be?
Would it be faster, slower, or just the same?
My main drive is a 256gb ocz vertex 4.
