[linux-lvm] LAZY MODE: Exchanging a LVM'ed disk

I currently have a disk in my LVM set which is only 1Gb. It's also quite old,
so I'd like to replace that with a newer/bigger one..

How would I go about doing this?

        1. Add the new disk at the end of the LVM
        2. Extend the filesystem
        3. Move the data from the old disk to the new
        4. Remove the old disk

Is this about right? Or is there a simpler/faster way?

Bare in mind that all the SCSI id's will change when i remove the old disk,
will that complicate issues?
