Many new featues.

For the hardware snapsot tools users or the default retry newbies..

renames the VG, and VG and PV uuids

i.g recover the original from the imported time frame.


Get rid of that extra pv chunk you used to make your home dir onto an new disk (PV) with a separate VG_name.

Better for the next upgrade.


after doing the above, maybe you want the /bakup or the /media LV moved to the new disk also.

move the extents of a PV and (optionally) limit the move to an LV to another PV

Thank you. I already have the fix on F12 and F13
"Fix allocation code not to stop at the first area of a PV that fits."
This half a thoht could be very important or it could be totally meaningless. lol

I think the dev's need a technical writer dictionary for slang/geek to human language.
