FUSE and private namespaces

By the way, this isn't actually a FUSE problem. It's a user mount problem. FUSE is highly useful, with no fancy namespace work, if you retain the traditional requirement that only a system administrator can mount a filesystem and the system administrator mounts only administrator-controlled FUSE daemons serving up files suitable for the global namespace.
The new function is required when you want to go a step further and let an ordinary user create FUSE-based filesystem and mount it himself.
And most of the same issue applies without FUSE -- for example, if you want to let a user load a personal CD into a drive and mount that.
