* With 2.6.39 there is no aufs2 support, at least for a long time[#1].
* I think that back in time with unionfs is not desirable, needs a 
complete kernel patch.
* union-fs-fuse does not work good.

What about using the method like in Fedora? (basically a device-mapper 
with a snapshot in tmpfs).

This change from file-to-file level to block-to-block logic.

I can do some research in my free time if there any interest on this.

I am open to all sugestions. Thanks.
