SGI has done that, and it seems that every other week there's a complaint
on sgi.admin about something broken.  The answer usually is that someone's
done a 'umount -a' and the solution is to run 'mntproc' to remount the
/proc filesystem...

I have nothing against it myself, but if we do go that route, prominent
note needs to be made so the clue-impaired have a fighting chance.
