Bryn,
  The ability to use -l and -ll to review an LVM backup file is very
useful when used with -f.  I'm sure I'm not the only one that keeps LVM
backup files in locations other than /etc/lvm/archive.  What if you
lose /etc and are booted from rescue?  Can RedHat please restore the
lost functionality?  This was very useful under LVM1.

thx,
Gerry
