You can always add other packages if needed for installation. So, if
there's agreement that lvm is not part of the bare base, you would
have to add it manually...


Yes so I don't think that is so very important. Even better would be
if the installation would detect that I have configured lvm or evms so
it would autoadd the tools for it, and if we do it like that is should
NOT be in the pattern.
