If you have a single btrfs filesystem with one snapshot from a while
back and one "head", would it be possible for some hypothetical tool to
create a new head which looks like the root from the snapshot but with
the latest /home on top? I mean, without actually copying the files from
the snapshot, just creating a "fake snapshot" that can the be mounted
and writeable. Then you wouldn't need a separate /home.
