[gobolinux-users] System/Index and ViewFS

Reading over ideas for System/Index, particularly
http://lists.gobolinux.org/pipermail/gobolinux-devel/2007-January/001979.html,
I wonder if ViewFS is really necessary. It would be one thing if union
mounts were widely supported across most platforms, but that's not the
case. Having to maintain a whole new and complex project for this seems
like a rather high barrier. So I wonder why simpler solutions do not
suffice? Two approaches come to mind 1) chroot, ie. ChrootCompile, and 2)
temporary user account (something along the lines of
http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/hints/downloads/files/more_control_and_pkg_man.txt,
but not actually keeping the user account permanently).
