Well, mke2fs writes a LOT of data into the partition, being especially
careful to overwrite everything at the start of the disk.  It might be
possible to recover this with "vgcfgrestore", but even then you have the
problem of overwriting the rest of the data on the disk.  If the primary
ext2 superblock is overwritten on an LV inside this disk, you can use
"e2fsck -b 32768" or so to try and recover.
