And what if the user modified the vg name in the custom spoke? Do we
overwrite their name or do we have to introduce some method for guessing
whether the name was set by us? This is looking like it's going to be
problematic. Maybe we should only go back and rename the vg if autopart
was used -- not for custom layouts.
