ISTM that it might be good to have a way to attach things to "inner"
versions of files.  Consider a system with /foo and /foo/bin as mount
points, with each of those filesystems containing a /foo/bin/bar, and a
desire to attach something to the version in the /foo/bin filesystem
(possibly in addition to, possibly instead of, the other one).

Or is that just Too Hard at present?
