	I, frankly, won't be upgrading LVM from my 0.9 beta 7 release
until something like this exists.  The whole concept of needing some
extra special process with several steps to do the migration scares the
willies out of me.  I keep important data on my computer.  I have no
desire to lose it.

	LVM should refuse to access VGs that have PVs that have this
problem, and there should be a straighforward, single-step migration
tool that comes with the release.
