I should have this sort of thing working cleanly from the Debian packaging
part within 2 weeks. This includes having /etc/lvmtab and /etc/lvmtab.d
owned by the lvm-common package which won't need to be upgraded (except for
when man pages change). Also upgrading lvm-common won't trash things because
they will be registered as conffiles.
Please try out my test packages of 0.8.1 on http://www.coker.com.au/lvm/ on a
test machine (NOT A PRODUCTION SERVER) and let me know how they go.
