Among the many places this needs to be changed is in the system upgrade
instructions in /usr/src/UPDATING. I've been typing 'mount -u /' for so
many years that it will take some time to re-program my neurons,
Was this really needed and just how does it improve things? Sure doesn't
make my life any easier, but it's not as bad as the mess Gnome 2.12 made
of a few things on my systems, so maybe I should not complain.
