Because I don't want the complexity of one spell providing, optionally,
device-mapper and/or lvm. I like the core packages to be simple. :)

Sometimes upstream is stupid. :) However, I'd go for #1 if no one likes
#2. I liked #2 because it keeps our setup the same, users won't notice,
and we cut down on downloads by one source (granted, both are included
in one tarball).
