Untrue. /proc/mounts lists bind-mounts differently, and doesn't list
my / properly:

Parts of /etc/mtab:
===================
/dev/hda3 / ext3 rw 0 0
/var/cache/apt/archives /var/www/deb-archive/debian none rw,bind 0 0


The same from /proc/mounts:
===========================
rootfs / rootfs rw 0 0
/dev/root / ext3 rw 0 0
/dev/hda6 /var/www/deb-archive/debian ext3 rw 0 0
