In other words: there is a partman-auto-lvm package
That is what I say right now.

So I can't tell at this moment 
- how to invoke partman-auto-lvm
- how to provide configuration information to p-a-l
- if it could fullfill the multiple VG wish

I just hope it get your further as postings that didn't mention p-a-l.
