Umm, I'm slightly disturbed that making a backup of /etc would no longer
save my bind configuration. Isn't this a violation of policy or something?
And yes, it was agreed that mount --bind was better but required a 2.4
kernel and therefore couldn't be relied apon.

Havn't we had this discussion before?

(Though now that woody is released, maybe requiring a 2.4 kernel is no big
deal anymore.)
