Thanks, that is precisely what I was looking for. Only that I did not find 
it in LVM version 2.00.07 and never thought of looking in something more 
recent :-\...

As to your other comment: at least currently I can very well temporarily 
unmount one VG while relabeling the copy. But I will test your 
recommendation anyway.

You can only access one copy at once.
Set filters in lvm.conf to switch between them. [Remember always to run
vgscan after changing filters.]

Then use the XXchange --uuid commands to change one set of UUIDs and
vgrename the VG.
