We send them to mainline and stable then it is up to the distributions
concerned to choose to apply them.  Sometimes it helps to give the
distribution(s) concerned a gentle prod and ask if they've noticed the
patch(es) and if/when they'll be taking them.

Various aspects of the design are being debated.  Expect to see progress 
to start to appear on lvm-devel over the next few weeks.  We're
hopeful we'll have something that's beginning to be useful in January.
