1) The live images are a pretty special beast and thus wouldn't be
influenced by any decision of fuse vs no fuse for /usr
2) fuse based unionfs suffers from a lot of the same problems as
non-fuse based.  Luckily, Val's work on union mounts seems to be
progressing pretty well although I'm not 100% sure what the time frame
on that is right now
