Thats not what the whole point is. The point of doing snapshots is to 
expose TO your backup process a consistent  filesystem while reducing 
the production downtime ( for people who use snapshots as a back 
transport ). The Snapshot isnt meant to be the backup.

Anyway, if you are looking to discuss the in's and out's of lvm and how 
it does what it does, there is a linux-lvm list, you might want to go 
ask there.
