Subject: multiple mounts on one mountpoint?

I would have expected that trying to mount something on a directory
already in use as a mount point would have given an error. It doesn't
on either 1.0/i386 or -current/i386.
Does someone want to claim this as a feature, or is it known to be
very awkward to fix, or should I send-pr it?
Learn something every day, by all means, but I'm not sure what this
# mount /dev/cd0a /mnt
# mount /dev/sd1a /mnt (No error here)
# ls /mnt (Displays /dev/sd1a contents)
# umount /dev/cd0a (umounts /dev/sd1a?!?)
# ls /mnt (Displays /dev/cd0a contents)
# umount /dev/cd0a (Phew! No panic!)
