LCFG installroot – groan, no Union FS in Fedora

I had been hoping to use a combination of a union filesystem (UnionFS or AUFS) with something like SquashFS for the new LCFG installroot, with writes going to the initramfs.
However the stock Fedora 12 kernel doesn’t include any kind of union filesystem (because there is no such filesystem in the mainline kernel). It doesn’t look like mainline kernel support will come any time soon – see http://lwn.net/Articles/327738/. So, given that we want to use stock kernels, think we’ll stay clear of this route for now…
