I have this in my /etc/fstab:
/home/pooka/temp/anita/wd0.img%DISKLABEL:a% /anita ffs rw,noauto,rump

It works perfectly for editing the image.  fsck is a slightly gray area,
but with wapbl it's not really a concern.  I use the following to mount
the image so that I don't need to unnecessarily sudo all the access:

> alias anitamnt
env P2K_WIZARDUID=0 mount -o log /anita

But on the original subject, maybe we can use either gop_alloc or vop_bmap
to decide if the underlying file systems supports vnd on sparse files.
