Hmmm, so I guess I'll have to change my current scheme. Does anyone
have an opinion/experience about using a Linux bind mounts? (Allows
one to "mount" a existing directory tree to another part of the file system
e.g. I'd like to 

        mount --bind /some/path/cvsroot /cvsroot

(currently I've got a symlink of /cvsroot -> /some/path/cvsroot).
