Well, I use them all over the place to keep accounts on separate /tmp's,
etc. It may not be the norm yet, but the general availability of
pam_mount etc, and the implementation of shared subtrees may well change
that.

But then if that happens, as Al points out, AA might be able to
embrace rather than fight it.
