mount --bind. Is there a performance hit for having too many of those?

mount --bind /meta/vfs/some/chroot /some/chroot/meta

Also, maybe a separately-mounted /meta, maybe with something like
'-o root='

I can't think of when you'd have a chrooted application that uses /meta,
but wasn't written with /meta in mind, so as to have these mount
commands in its init scripts.
