    Has the cabal (which does not exist) reached a verdict on the preferred
    solution for 2.6 yet, so that we can sort of see where things are going?

    Who has the hat "Volume Manager" on his gullible head? ;-)

    I'll again pipe in for the radical solution: EVMS(powerful) on top of

    EVMS also shows promise as they are working on _open_ cluster support, which I
    think will be one of the big things to happen in 2.7.

    Rip out the compatibility cruft (LVM1, md and maybe others), as EVMS can do
    everything they can as promised.

    I'd understand if the compatibility "cruft" was still left in for 2.6 so
    people could use the 2.6 timeframe to migrate and then finally kick it out
    first thing in 2.7.

    But then, I have a strong, explosive allergy to duplicated chunks of code.
