This *is* Al Viro's explicit goal, yes. I don't think it's a bad one.

I hope he gets around implementing proper union mounts soon, at least there has been some progress on the user space front and we have a 9mount command that is more or less safe for non-root users to use.

Plan 9 from User Space has also made quite a bit of progress and is quite usable (one can even use venti to have automatic snapshot backups on almost any *nix system, which is quite a bit better than Apple's TimeMachine).

And now there is 9vx which makes running Plan 9 kernels on top of linux a breeze...
