RFE: virt-sparsify cannot handle multi-disk virtual machines (eg. if they use LVM, MD, LDM, etc)

Description of problem:
virt-sparsify takes 'indisk' and 'outdisk' parameters. This
is a problem for multi-disk virtual machines, especially ones
using LVM, MD, LDM or other volume management where a single
filesystem might be spread over multiple disks.
I have a 3 disk Windows VM using LDM that simply cannot be
sparsified properly, because it's not possible to mount the
LDM partitions that take up the majority of the disk space.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I documented the problem upstream:
