Our testing group has machines that use AOE.  It works well with  
CLVM.  However, they use their machines as a cluster.  It seems to me  
that you want to carve up your storage, but you only want one machine  
to use each piece.

LVM manual briefly mentions CLVM (should apply equally well to debian):

You will want to come up to speed on the cluster infrastructure (at  
least the setup) if you want to use CLVM....
