I might add some projects encountered during this morning's work:
- add HVM support to xen 4  (Maybe part of "Support latest features of Xen")
- add snapshot support to lvm

I'd add multipathing (MPP and RDAC) too. Not within LVM, but lower level
as a virtual SCSI bus like Linux does.

What's bad with the native Linux multipathing? This operates on the same
level as LVM.

Well, we may be talking at cross-purposes. There is inconsistency between RDAC and MPP on Linux both from an architectural and UI point of view. RDAC is on the same level of LVM, MPP is lower; it gives you a virtual SCSI bus and that's much neater IMHO.
