the reason why i say this is lvm appears to just be an application interface
method of the manual way of using dd to create a large file then associating
that file via the mapper and the loopx devices then initializinig a file
system on it and then mounting it... using this manual approach i have
created a master encrypted 'disk' with several volumes inside it and
successfully mounted each with no problem... copying the one large master
file backs up the entire subsystem i created inside as well...so if lvm is in
fact an application that manipulates this type of setup, then you should be
able to create volumes within a volume.
