Ahh, of course, now that I think about it.

Anyway, why is a read only mount a good solution for a shared revlib?
I would want to avoid nfs wherever possible - I currently have three
users (me, coworker, and "stable" arch tree/user) on same box, so
why would I want to use nfs just to get some read-only attribute.
And in my case, it's a greedy revlib, so each user needs to be able
to write to it too... isn't that the whole point of a revlib?
