That's my understanding as well. I was pretty sure traditional *nix filesystems worked this way. What I wasn't sure of is whether union mounts, or one of the newer filesystems supported something fancier. I know if I state unequivocally that it can't be done, the odds are against me someone will demonstrate I'm wrong. ;-)
