    MVFS, as was correctly guessed from my diff. It is providing a view into
    a source-code control system, so that a given process can specify the
    version it wishes to see. Yes, different processes then see a different
    filesystem tree at the same mount point.

    point in adding to an already overly long CC line. ;-)

    Thanx, Paul
