Re: Bug#652275: Guided partitioning should not offer separate /usr, /var, and /tmp partitions; leave that to manual partitioning

Wait, what?  AFAIK, multiple partitions in LVM _don't_ share
free-space, they're basically independent filesystems, with the
individual hard allocation limits (and if one wants to _change_ those
limits, growing-shrinking filesystems in concert with partitions seems
all too easy for a user to screw up, hosing their data).
