I didn't say anything about how file system layout should be mapped to
disk partitions[*]. Nor do I support the concept of making lots and lots of
small partitions.  Check the archives: I'm one of the people that regularly
advocates the 'one big root' style.

possible to access any files on the same partition, which would make a separate
partition for /exports a damn good idea.
