That, and it may be usefull to be able to say: I know something is
wrong, but I need some files _now_, so please give me everything 
you have and don't wait until I mounted and initialized a new drive.

Perhaps damaged VGs should be read only, at least by default, to prevent
further damage. 

I was really worried when LVM didn't start with a corrupted partition
table: The PV on that disk was actually empty (perhaps a LV on it,
but no data) as I only added it to try out ext2 resizing without risking
the other partitons.
