Well, I've just checked and

mount --move /dev /temp-mount-point
mount --bind /dev /where-you-want-it
mount --move /temp-mount-point /dev

works on a live system (modulo bug #282205), so you can leave it
disabled by default and provide a little helper script to turn it on on
request. Of course this is a bad idea as long as 2.4 kernels are
officially supported, so in sarge the default should be "on", and after
sarge the default can be switched to "off".
