i think you already hinted this, but just do the dedicated subvol
thing; no need to try and build any of the crap i posted now or later

i've been pretty heavy into implementing my design, and for the most
part i'm pleased... but i made quite a few updates to the structure
and most of what i posted no longer applies.  among other things, i
decided to dump all the actual subvols into the /, like you


for simpler mounting.  my only real annoyance was having to look at
them, but the leading period takes care of that :-) plus i forgot
there are a couple bugs in the tool i need to discover the internal id
(entries are missing arbitrarily) that could lead to a situation where
i cannot mount the root for a really dumb reason.

in other words, don't mind me... move along, nothing to see here.
