Fixing by removing some features you do not use?
Would you please like to split the patch in two?
1. Fix the bug.
2. Removes features you do not like.
The patch #1 will be merged sooner than #2 I think.
I know that often less is better, but this removes also things which are meant
as helpers to create other ways to use persistence and stackable fs.
Ok "live-snapshot" is more than just a snapshot helper, maybe it need a name
split or something, but just removing useful features does not seems viable

Thanks for the quality work you did, but would you like to repost just the
patch "fix the problem I found" only? Then we could open a discussion if live-
snapshot other feature could be placed on another script/binary.
