Looks pretty cool.  I've not used any serious volume managers (Sun's
DiskSuite would be the closest) - how does it interact with RAIDframe?
Would the model be to have RAIDframe components on logical volumes or
vice versa?  Tools for resizing native NetBSD filesystems would be good

The main political factor would be that NetBSD doesn't want GPL'd code
in the kernel.  Do you think that there'd be any chance that the
author would also be willing to release LinuxLVM under a BSD-style licence?
