still a 2TB limit in F14 Anaconda, for LVM PV size

I just tried to install F14 on a new server with a 7.6 TB RAID (five 
Hitachi 2 TB drives on a 3ware 9750).  I was pleased to see that the 
disk partitioning interface in Anaconda recognized the array and didn't 
have a problem with the size, reporting it as 7629352 MB.  Unfortunately 
it won't let me create an LVM PV larger than 2 TB (2095151 MB).  And if 
I try to create two PVs, it limits them to 1 TB each.

Is there any good reason to have this limit, or should I report it as a 
bug against Anaconda (or some other component)?
