I don't think you fully appreciate the request you're making here.
Commercial Unices such as HP-UX and Solaris can not boot from striped
volumes for about the same reasons why it would be difficult to have
LILO read from a striped volume: the implications are just too
horrendous to comtemplate.

Typically I don't care that my boot partition/lv can not be striped. The
I/O rates into that volume are just not high enough to need striping.
Why not put our efforts to something else which is more important right


All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto
the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.
