LVM is perfect.

You wish. :)

OK, nothing in any OS is perfect and Linux LVM isn't either. Sure there
are some _features_ that some have wished for. There's probably some
bugs. I haven't noticed any.

I didn't see any _partition_ option on Etch's installer. If you want
partitions of a raid device, it looks like you need to mark it for use
with LVM.

So other than wishlist items for more features, what's wrong with LVM as
it stands now? Is there any reason not to use it? Is it better to use
cfdisk on it?
