+/*************************** Design Overview ********************************/
+
+/*
+ * The API is designed around the following basic LVM objects:
+ * 1) Physical Volume (PV) 2) Volume Group (VG) 3) Logical Volume (LV).
+ *
+ * The library provides functions to list the objects in a system,
+ * get and set object properties (such as names, UUIDs, and sizes), as well
+ * as create/remove objects and perform more complex operations and
+ * transformations. Each object instance is represented by a handle, and
+ * handles are passed to and from the functions to perform the operations.
+ *
+ * A central object in the library is the Volume Group, represented by the
+ * VG handle, vg_t. Performing an operation on a PV or LV object first
+ * requires obtaining a VG handle. Once the vg_t has been obtained, it can
+ * be used to enumerate the pv_t's and lv_t's within that vg_t. Attributes
+ * of these objects can then be queried.
+ *
+ * A volume group handle may be obtained with read or write permission.
+ * Any attempt to change a property of a pv_t, vg_t, or lv_t without
+ * obtaining write permission on the vg_t will fail with EPERM.
