IMHO it is a better long term solution to integrate current LVM into the
mainstream linux kernel base: maybe this causes LVM 1.0 schedule to be
postponed a couple of weeks, but benefits are great:

a) More developers looking at the code, and better and faster integration
with kernel changes (VFS and so on).

b) More people giving LVM a try: perhaps the need for patches and maybe
some tweaking with kernel sources prevented some users from using LVM.

c) Linux kernel's LVM version up to date. Those people trying LVM from
original 2.4.x source tree can get frustated with bugs/functionality of an
old LVM version. Would avoid bug reports on closed bugs.

d) Sooner or later, it has to be done, why wait ?

Greetings, and keep up the good work !
