XFS data recovery

So, a friend of mine did an accidental rm on ALL of /var on a system.
We're wondering what our options are for getting that data back.  He
ctrl-Cd the deletion partway through when he realized what happened,
and shut off the system.  /var was its own partition, formatted as XFS
on top of LVM2 spanning two drives.  Each drive is 250GB, for 500GB
total system capacity.  /var was half of that, 250GB (but using both
drives via LVM).  Only about 500MB was used space.  Ideas?
