Previous discussions of this idea concluded with "this is a good idea",
but no-one has implemented it yet.  I think it should be very easy
to add this for PVs, using the userspace library LVM provides.

On a related note, I just found out about relaytool, which is useful for
making soft dependencies.  i.e. "if libX isn't available, then support
for X will be disabled."  It can be used to avoid the mess that exists
in libparted/fs_reiser.  Pity it only support PPC and x86.
