[nSLUG] adding spare disk to md RAID

In mdadm examples I see how to add a spare disk to
an array when creating it. e.g.:

mdadm --create /dev/md1 --level=1 --raid-disks=2 /dev/hda2 \
  /dev/hde2 --spare-disks=1 /dev/hdg2

Surely there must be a way to reference it later and add
it without recreating the array but I'm having trouble
locating an example of this.
