    SubjectLoopback mounts
    Hi,

    Is anyone out there working on loopback directory mounts like on SunOS?
    For example mounting a file system to /local
    /local having a subdirectory /local/mail
    the loopback mount would do the following
    mount /local/mail /var/spool/mail

    I know symbolic links can do the job but I think the SunOS way is a much
    Cleaner way.
    In one of the 1.1.x kernels there was a guy who partially implemented it but
    it was never incorporated into the kernel and so it was never followed up
    anymore.

    Can this be put on the "todo" list for the next development stage???

    Thanks to all who have contributed to the great 2.0.0. It's a charm :)
