Hello, Premysl,

I'm not working on these features, however I am working in this area of
code implementing the libvirt storage pools spec. If anybody does start
working on this, please reach out to coordinate as I have a bunch of
related patches. My work should also make your features significantly
easier to implement.

Out of curiosity, can you explain why you want to use LVM specifically over
the file-based backends?
