They don't support software-raid nor LVM filesystems. I guess the superblock is probably why - there would need to be additional
logic to handle that. Probably not much logic, but it seems like partimage is completely dead as far as support/development is
concerned... Although it seems to be the only comparable tool out there.
The question is if it would somehow be possible to load the md driver/daemon and make the md partitions look like regular ext3 HD
partitions. But I am not sure if there is a way to get that done in a way that it would be transparrent to partimage...
