Now it won't do much, it only takes name of the thin-LVM and name of
the future snapshot. When you use this command, it creates snapshot
before the system will restart at the end of the installation.
Main reason for this is testing if everything is fine after an
installation and factory reset for a running system.

For future I think it should have:
* before/after (or even before post/pre section) installation do a
snapshot to existing LV
* required parameters for other storage (like size of a snapshot for
normal LVM) and who knows what for btrfs or anything else in the future
* mountpoint where you want to mount this snapshot (you can do backup
of whole system before install and automatically mount it to some place
in installed system)
  * mount it as ro/rw should be another parameter

I think there could be even more of similar features.
