Or those that run user shells within jails. Users tend to
find out surpsisingly quickly how to panic machines.
I changed to using NFS loopback mounts within jails, and it
works perfectly fine. The NFS overhead is neglectible (it
almost seems like the NFS code takes some shotcuts when run
through localhost), it doesn't "feel" slower than direct
local disk mounts.
