Plus it can replace software RAID as well (at least for RAID1). I'm
looking into it as my next experiment.
Assuming it works well under Xen (or vice-versa actually).

With LVM i create a logical volume, format it (or not), and give it to
a Xen guest as a physical drive which will then hold the OS (which may
have different FSs). I'll have to grok how ZFS does that.
