I am not sure what applications you are thinking of. However, the type of
applications I am thinking of require all directories to be merged.
$ settrans /cdrom /hurd/isofs /dev/cdrom
$ settrans /tmp/space /hurd/tmpfs 64M
$ settrans /live /hurd/shadowfs /cdrom /tmp/root
And then boot from /live (which is not possible right now because of a
limitation in our boot procedure, it should be possible to pass existing
ports as the root directory port to the booting hurd). Or use chroot.
Then you have a live CD ROM system.
$ settrans ~/space /hurd/ext2fs ~/image
$ settrans ~/root /hurd/shadowfs / ~/space
And you have a copy of the system which you can boot/chroot, and where you have
write permission to install more packages etc...
$ make install prefix=/tmp/install-root
$ settrans /tmp/root / /tmp/install-root
