yes and no .. depends on th point of view

both mount points and data is moved ...

	mount /dev/hdaxxx on /home
	mount /dev/hdaxxx on /usr

but if one wants to take data on /dev/hdaxxx ( say 2GB ) and put that on
/dev/hdayyy ( say 10GB), than "changing mount points" will not help 

but, mounting /dev/xxxx on /home or /foo-bar will move the data with it
except in one case its called(accessed differently) /home/tom or /foo-bar/tom
	- data is moved for free
