Just remember, overhead is more than just the load. While LVM is
pretty stable at this point it does add more complexity and is another
layer of stuff that can go wrong. A corrupted LVM volume can take out
data on both disks, but if they were separate you'd me likely to only
loose about half your data.

Just food for thought :)
