Yes and no - I have union mounts on a -current system and have used
pkg_comp recently (last week) but pkg_comp itself is only using null
mounts (fairly default setup)

I use a union mount of /usr/src under /home/plunky/src to give me a
private source copy and I have found in the past that if you start
changing the lower filesystem (eg do a cvs update there) it will bomb - I
havent tried it lately though, normally I just dismount first.
