No such command implemented yet.

you can use LVM2 and change the text format of the metadata by hand
before running vgcfgrestore to store it back onto the PVs.

If you want to follow this non-supported path, you want to take a copy
of the original metadata file in /etc/lvm/backup/ to be able to back out gain.
