Since we're petitioning Linus to include 'current' LVM code, I believe that we
should make it clear what Linux LVM 'currently' supports.  Though a section
including future growth would probably be a good idea, since it'd give Linus a
good feeling about future support, and also let him know what direction this
piece of code is going in. 

Of course, include my name on the petition.
