One design error is that you cannot "carve out" an ordinary partition
from an LVM.  Once a portion of the drive is LVM, then that portion of
the drive is LVM forever until the LVM is completely gone.
This makes LVM a bad neighbor in a consulting environment where
flexibility is king: multiple systems per drive, and many of
the systems do not understand LVM.
