Most of the work has been done, by Per Andersson as a GSoC project in
2009. The tricky bit is getting parted to do something with
not-real-disks. The patch for that was sent but never got merged
upstream( I discovered last week, so we proabbly missed squeeze). It
needs a bit of chivvying, and I'd love to see it finished.
I think you'll find that what you want pretty-much works already. It
might need a bit of updating as a year has passed.
