[CentOS] Shrinking a volume group

I did something stupid when setting up a server which is now live. I
think I'm stuck.
I set up swap on Raid1 which is decidedly non-optimal. I'd prefer 2
independent swap partitions at the same priority.
Here is the set up:
/dev/sda1 + /dev/sdb1 -> md0 (raid1)
md0 -> VolGroup00
VolGroup00 -> VG00LV00(/), VG00LV01(/home), VG00LV02(swap)
I've gotten as far as :
Turning off swap and removing LV02.
Next step would be to shrink VG00. But it looks like you can only
shrink a volume group by removing entire PV's. I only have 1 PV.
So I think I'm stuck.
