Smile Debian server: LVM or not?

Hello, I am trying to setup a small server for my web, mails and RVM with Ruby, gems. I cannot decide if I should use LVM or not as I have one internat 150 GB HDD. Some folks say it's a great thing but only useful if you plan to add new drives (which I don't). Should I use it or not?

If I go with LVM, I plan to create logical volumes for /home, /usr, /var and swap. Could someone please give advice concerning initial size of those volumes?

For reference, I posted this question on serverfault with more details.

Thanks guys for your experience.
