yes, as talked off-list this will probably come, but needs a bit of adaption...
But as I do not want to maintain the current 2.x needle branch for PVE 6 for
until ~2022 I'd rather do some work now.

We wait on a bugfix release (or do one with the stable patches ourself), but
yes in general we'd like to ship a newer one backporting (security) fixes
normally does not gets easier the longer the interval between upstream current
and used version, and some new features are great too..

I think this is a bit longer on the roadmap, but one needs to do the work :D

great!

besides a cleaner interface, do you know some other improvements blockdev
provides?

cheers,
