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.
