When I tried Yggdrasil's stuff a couple of years back, that distribution
has something called IFS ("Werner's Inherited File System", IIRC). This
was used in a configuration where you chose to leave most of the stuff
on de CDROM, and your filesystem got mounted over that. You could change
files, and those files would be copied to and updated on your filesystem.

I recall that it worked quite well. Anyone know why it didn't get into
the mainstream kernel?
