LOL haven't gotten myself in fix *YET*.  But I am experimenting and 
trying to plan ahead.  I've got a few lvm setups going on virtual 
machines and was planning on trying to brake them then use whatever 
recovery methods I could find on google to recover.  However, when I've 
searched nothing really concrete comes up.  A few suggestions of running 
fsck against the /dev/vg_name/lv_name.  However, I've totally screwed 
myself running fsck before and wanted another option before I go down 
that path again.
