I think I'd rather that we add a field to the .poolOptions struct
called  defaultFormat, and just do


And then in the storage_conf.c method where we're parsing formats,
if we get a NULL format, explicitly set it to the default. We'd
want todo this for all drivers that support formats, not just LVM.

Then we wouldn't need to wrap the FromString methods.
