"Warning:Submount is still under development.   It has had moderate
testing so far.   If it crashes your system, destroys your data, or
causes your computer to go mad and try to murder you, the author is not
responsible"

"SuSE was the first major distribution to include submount, and now is
the first to use it in the standard installation. (Now I get to find out
if millions of users expose bugs that haven't come to light yet. Yes, I
am paranoid.)"

This *really* fills me with confidence.  That and the fact it's had
no upstream (linux-kernel) review whatsoever.
