When was the last time you needed to do that?

AFAIK the only reason you need to do LVM stuff from outside LVM nowadays is if 
you want to rename a VG - that's not a common operation.

On one of my AMD64 servers the sum of /usr/bin, /usr/sbin, and /usr/lib is 
160M.  On my AMD64 workstation (which has heaps of things installed) it is 
165M for /usr/bin and /usr/sbin and 1.3G for /usr/lib of which 214M is for 
Libre Office.

Probably the best thing we could do in this regard is to move some stuff from 
/usr to /usr/share or some other tree that is more convenient for placing on a 
different filesystem.

I've got a 1GB USB stick (which is too small for most uses of USB sticks) 
which is setup for system recovery, it has a complete text-mode Debian
