Folks should consider that with the 2.6 kernel, there are a few
additional tools we can bring to bear on the problem; specifically, we
can use "mount --bind" to allow part of the filesystem to be overmount
another part of the filesystem, and namespaces, so that different
programs get to see a different set of mounts.  

This may allow for some additional creative solutions that people may
not have considered up until now....
