LVM2 text metadata files can only only hold a single VG at the moment.
vgcfgbackup should enforce that, but doesn't - I'll fix it.

The long-term plan is to allow them to hold multiple VGs but the
library certainly doesn't support that yet.

I'll think about it a bit and add a different extension to vgcfgbackup 
to make it easy to back up everything at once (maybe filename prefix or 
template option).
