This is really just an implementation detail. We still need to define the
storage concepts we want to expose in the public API, before figuring out
on the backend implementation. Most of the implementation wiill pretty much 
have to follow the scheme of just invoking command line tools like lvcreate
and lvs, since formal APIs are scarse.
