Oh yes, this would get rid of aufs for us. Her work has been reviewed
and commented several times by some VFS developers on LKML, and it seems
there are still some unsolved issues. I don't think we'll be there
before 2.6.37.

We could always create a special 'archiso' kernel with union-mounts and
squashfs-lzma code - the code is there, it's just not 'official'.
