It was just intended as a quick comment, but perhaps I should of
explained further.  In the example nsmux is used to do a unionmount,
but nsmux itself is a translator you'd want to unionmount.  So you'd
need an unionmount of nsmux to unionmount nsmux, in which case you'd
already have a nsmux instance you can use.  :-)
