You can do it with manual finagling and custom configs right now, but
doing it in a generalized fashion isn't going to make Fedora 8.  We[1]
started on some work to do this, but given that it was leading to
filesystem corruption, it didn't seem like the best thing to leave
enabled for users to trip over :-/  We're planning to revisit the
problems once development for Fedora 9 begins and hopefully have the
functionality enabled and working well for the Fedora 9 release.


[1] Mostly the work of Douglas McClendon; my role was mostly just
looking over the patches and going "hrmmm, what about foo?" :)
