Well, it's commonly know that mostly the horror stories are what people
tell each other and remember.  And especially in this very place, as it's
main purpose (apart from developing the software further) is to be a
contact point for people encountering such issues.

I'm quite sure that there are (ten- / hundred-)thousands of LVM
installations that just work; like those I did on a number of systems.

Me too.


P.S. Next project for me: make GRUB2 read LVM volumes.  Anyone who wants
to help or has already done something, please speak up now.
