i second this. possibly Heinz as the main developer is currently very
deep into the cool new stuff of his upcoming v0.9, and so working on
0.8 isn't very attractive to him.

however, for users, 0.8 is what we have and it's become very difficult
to keep track of all the different patches/fixes. (least it would be
if it wasn't for andreas).

also, there are people who'd love to try LVM out on bigger machines
than home servers and laptops. but who need to convince a boss
first. a clean install process makes that latter part a lot
