It's a nice idea, but for a somewhat different purpose. This is overlaying the read-only root with a writable overlay. Where I'd like to get to is a purely read-only setup where nothing is writing to e.g. /etc. fsprotect could be considered to be working around deficiencies with our current situation, where I would like to fix the underlying problems making an aufs overlay necessary in the first place.
