I personally don't know a whole lot about MD, but there seem to be a lot
of people using it.  Maybe people on the list using MD and LVM together can
comment.

I'm just not sure if we can rely on something like /proc/mounts for pvcreate
and vgcreate...I will look into it though.  If you have any suggestions, or
if you want to send patches, I would appreciate it.
