For the purposes of system rollback: Provide the ability to create a snapshot 
of all thinly provisioned LVM2 volumes associated with FS mount points that 
are relevant to a yum transaction. 

== Detailed description ==
Yum's fs-snapshot plugin already has support for LVM2's old snapshots. LVM2's 
new thinp snapshots offer much more performance and ease administration. It is 
desirable to have the life-cycle of snapshots that are created by yum's fs-
snapshot plugin be managed by the snapper utility. As such it could be that 
the yum fs-snapshot plugin is extend to provide a wrapper around snapper for 
the creation of thinp based snapshots.
