The problem with this solution -- if I understand you correctly -- is
that it doesn't deal well with a population of home directories that
may change while the jail is running. This is what I described as
"writing a poorly designed automounter". I could...
- Iterate over /home
- Generate an appropriate /etc/fstab.<jail> entry for each directory
- Start the jail
...but the only way to pick up changes would be to reboot the jail.
This is certainly a functional fallback position, but I'd love a more
