stowfs/unionfs is part of the GNU Hurd, but is currently hosted in at http://sv.nongnu.org/projects/hurdextras.

    • packagefs/stowfs

This would be the package manager for GNU, it would sit on /package
and then "merge things into /, i.e. /packages/*/bin becomes /bin.
Installation is done by:

tar -xzvf emacs-21.1.tgz
ln -s /packages/emacs-21.1 emacs-21.1

And deinstallation would be to simply remove /packages/emacs-21.1.

      • write a canonical document about packagefs/stowfs

This document should include things that packagefs/stowfs should be
capable of, and how things should behave.
