Well, unionmount is not yet production ready, since it still requires
some work to bring it to a state sufficiently nice to be make public.
So, if you won't ask of it more than it can do, it'll do it for you in
the nearest future :-) (Well, I hope so very much)

OTOH, I'm not sure whether by saying ``unionmount'' you do refer to
``project unionmount''.  Reading through your post, it occurred to me
that some of the tasks might not require the unionmount I'm working at
now, but the already working unionfs, which should not be deemed to
oblivion :-)

Another detail which you will most likely need to consider is speed:
it might be my own hallucination, but things do work a (notable) bit
slower when I'm merging several directories with unionfs.  And here we
come back to the well-known problem: drivers for better hardware (and,
IIRC, Arne mentions this problem in another post)
