The only problem I see here in comparison to the unification from
vserver is, that if you upgrade your template, you force-upgrade any
of the vservers, that depend on it, wanted or not.
Also, if some of these vservers allready have been upgraded earlier, you
will have the same data twice (or more).
So unionfs fit's only in certain vserver installations, exactly as it is
with vunify. Often too much of a hassle in comparison to the pricing,
that storage costs today.
