A look at the PyPy 2.0 release
The non-snapshot LVM/DM code is not too bad, though there are some tools issues - e.g. pvmove can corrupt data if it runs out of memory - see http://serverfault.com/a/339899/79266 and http://deranfangvomende.wordpress.com/2009/12/28/a-primer...

pvmove uses mirrors, not snapshots.
It works by setting up temporary mirrors for the kernel to sync the data between the old and new locations.
