It's called Logical Volume Manager (LVM [1]) and has been around for 
nearly a decade now. I've used it on every system I installed in the 
past few years (only /boot is not on LVM); it's even a standard option 
in the partition configuration of the Debian installer now.
Whether using LVM for a 4GB flash disk in the XO makes sense is a 
different question, though.
