I don't know how much you have read of my previous discussion with Wei
on this matter.

If I correctly understand you proposal, that's more or less what I
suggested by "using a proxy FS server". This is indeed a very powerful
approach, and I'd love to see some mechanism to make it easy to set up
such "pseudo-chroot" environments.

However, I also suggested that the simple approach using environment
variables is not only much easier to implement for the beginning, but
probably also easier to use in simple cases, where you just want to
start a process with a single server replaced.

Thus, I believe that even if we want to have the more powerful/generic
approach using a local name space, it might be worthwhile *also* to
implement the simpler approach initially.
