Nope, we're working on a target which does allow multiple
thinp/snapshots to be stored in the same metadata and data volumes. 

With the thinp target the idea is to allocate very little excess space
in the data volume, and allow dm-eventd to automatically do the resizing
as it grows (Alasdair's currently working on the userland tools).
