Oh!  I had never heard of that option before.  I tried it.  It isn't
perfect but it is good enough.  Thank you very much for telling me
about that option!

It would be great if this were the default option.  And with that I
have converted this to a wishlist.  Please set compact_output=1 as the
default option so that it isn't required for everone to maintain a
locally modified lvm.conf file past package upgrades.
