Can unionfs be used as a way to install packages on a per-user level? That is, mount ~/root/bin as a writable layer over /bin, and ~/root/etc over /etc and so forth, then run tools like dpkg or rpm to install packages on a per-user basis? That would seem to be a really useful tool..it sucks that unix systems are meant to be multi-user, yet users still need to ask an administrator to install packages.
