I'm trying to get Anaconda team requirements in some written form - they are
doing many weird things which needs to be sorted out (currently they use some
rather very ugly hacks in their code) - I believe they do not need to handle
things in python at all as they do now and they should be happy with lvm2cmd
library - IMHO they need some virtual LVM support - but let's wait what will
they provide to us.
