(still ?) root on LVM problems

I had a peek at the ML lately and saw a few messages reporting some
success in using GRUB2 as a bootloader in a root-on-lvm setup.

I decided to give it a try, so I grabbed it from CVS, but unfortunately
it didn't work, just as in my previous tries :(

I can't get why but grub-setup insists on overwriting some important
blocks at the beginning of the disk, thus destroying the lvm metadata.
Hopefully, there was no harm, I'm used to it so I had backups.

Still, I'd like to understand why it doesn't work on my setup… Does
(as I understand) root-on-lvm mean everything-on-lvm including /boot ?
Could someone help me find what I do wrong ?
