Sure, but it can still introduce boot problems after kernel upgrade. The bug 
about kernel commandline containing 'root=/dev/' seems to still occur (at 
least on Mandriva 2010.x).

However, it would be nice to have it, leaving some space on the VG, and 
possibly have urpmi prompt to extend filesystems if it is required for 
software installation/upgrade.
