This is precisely the kind of manual intervention that I want to avoid...
Ideally, it should be done automatically. Your approach wouldn't work
on read-only filesystems (and some of them can't be mounted read-write
anyway: ISO-9660 with Rockridge extensions).
By the way, I thought of using unionfs but it would be overkill and messy.
