Mirroring should be dealt with in LVM itself, by mapping more PEs on physical 
seperate PVs to each LE. From the little information I've seen about the new LVM 
mirroring, it seems that the mirrors are defined on LV level instead of LE/PE. 
But after some JFGI sessions nothing really enlightening has shown up.

And if it turns out that there is a God, I don't believe that he is evil.
The worst that can be said is that he's an underachiever.
