To be clear, I don't have a problem booting the system or even putting
the disk into a situation/configuration where I can play doctor on it. 
That is not the nature of my query.

What I want to know is if there is any way I can use LVM, and the way it
writes metadata into the partition (if indeed it does do that) to help
me determine where that given PV started so that I can put the partition
boundaries (i.e. the partition table) back and try to further recover
the PV.
