Again, I feel the solution is to have a Fedora architect whose role

LVM is functional for enterprise environments but awful for the common
home or office cases. If btrfs lives up to its promises it'll give us
something that provides pretty much all the functional beneft of LVM
without the additional abstraction that makes seemingly straightforward
tasks sufficiently awkward that even I find it abstruse (and I hack on
ACPI). I think that's entirely in keeping with Linux heritage.
(AIX, on the other hand, delights in partying like it's 1979. Are you
confusing the two?)
