If you have some patches provided with some good usable testing (lvm2 test 
suite)  - it could be possibly merged.

On the other hand helping/suggesting users to use Btrfs on top of lvm2 has 
also its logical 'question' marks.  Since  btrfs users should probably be 
avoiding placing 'another' layer between real hw - when btrfs should be mostly 
capable handling lvm2 features in its 'very own' way. Each layer has it's own 
measurable costs. And yeah we do not want to be involved into btrfs related 
recovery cases, as we simply never understood its handling of attached disks.
