Work has begun.

The first step is to achieve proper separation of the 'tools' and 'lib'
directories - so the 'tools' directory will only use the new library
interface.   If you watch the lvm-devel list you'll see a number of
patches going into the tree and the new interface evolving.  Feel free
to help out on the lvm-devel mailing list.
