Easy-union 0.2 provides simple unionfs management within Nautilus

Written for Easy-union by Jonathan Lestrelin on 2009-06-25

Easy-union extension for Nautilus is a simple way of managing "Union points" which are junctions of directories made using fuse-unionfs that are automatically mounted when Gnome starts. It allows to organise data more efficiently, providing the power of unionfs to Nautilus. The 0.2 release still needs some polish but became usable and now allow a directory to be a branch of itself.

Features still missing and planned for next release are :
 * Ability to set a branch to be in read-write mode
 * Detecting changes on directories that were absent at the time of mount, so they can be mounted when they appear
