Yes, I see your point.
For the ideal correct solution, handling conflicts like that is necessary.
But for practical purposes, I think it is a possible way.

I think someone already asked a similar question here - http://www.mail-archive.com/aufs-users@lists.sourceforge.net/msg01327.html Looks like with the help of inotify interface it is possible to "control" those dishonest attempt to break things.

Hm. I don't really get it.
Should I "build chroot" using the entire copy of my root?
