IMHO specifying the % in threshold is a good idea. You suggest to assume some
default threshold for newly created thin pool if user is not passing
anything. May be we can document this in lvm2app.h mentioning if '0'
passed as percentage it will be treated as the default thresold and 100%
means no event will be generated. What do you think about this policy?
