	Yes, indeed. There were some comments about patitions mounted
 via exotic methods may not be visible in /etc/mtab; in which case we
 can make the checkdu script additionally read /etc/apt/extra-partitions
 or something foe sites that use such partitions, and still work
 automagically for the most common case of simpler sites (which use
 local disks and NFS).

	It is trivial to modify checkdu to determine the required depth.

 So we follow our wandering paths, and the very darkness acts as our
 guide and our doubts serve to reassure us. Jean-Pierre de Caussade,
