The ideal solution would be to have LVM not write any files at all and
do everything in memory. If I want to make a backup (e.g. when changing
anything) either make the meta data journaling or save the backup to
some where in /var

just my Û0.02 (soon equal to $0.02, btw on my mac this is an euro sign)
    
But, I won't complain. LVM rocks as it is and I'm happy with it.
