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.
