When the novice end user realizes that they made some poor storage decisions
initially, they can, with a little learning, fix it without much hassle.

I have a system which, for silly reasons, I did not use LVM, and then ended
up having change a separately-mounted /usr, and now (in a sort of irony,
considering this thread) can't shut down cleanly under systemd. Awesome.

I'm not particularly attached to LVM as a specific technology, but we need
something with equivalent functionality before we ditch it.
