[linux-lvm] Reserve space for specific thin logical volumes

Hi list,
as by the subject: is it possible to reserve space for specific thin 
logical volumes?

This can be useful to "protect" critical volumes from having their space 
"eaten" by other, potentially misconfigured, thin volumes.

Another, somewhat more convoluted, use case is to prevent snapshot 
creation when thin pool space is too low, causing the pool to fill up 
completely (with all the associated dramas for the other thin volumes).
