Unionfs support in the live CD

Registered by Matt Zimmerman on 2005-10-19

As of Ubuntu 5.10, the live CD uses device-mapper snapshots to provide the functionality of a writable filesystem. Because unionfs provides more flexibility (e.g., use of read-only filesystems for the underlying layer), it should also be available as an experimental option, and evaluated as a possible replacement if it reaches a reasonable level of stability and robustness.
