Loopback != NFS. Call this 'local file system' (lofs) if you live in a
Solaris world. AFAIK they seem to use very little memory.

The users home directories and the base of the chrooted bin, dev,  lib
etc. live in two separate filesystems, so a hard link just won't  work
in my case. Also, users can delete hard  links  and  thus  screw  their
environment. They can't delete mounted lofs mount points.
