Hi, evryone ;)))
Reading my daily webs, trying to get to know the competence :þ , I saw 
this on  http://www.debian.org/News/weekly/2003/33/ :
"Mounting the Root Filesystem read-only. Thomas Hood noted that one of 
the remaining obstacles to running cleanly with the root filesystem 
mounted read-only has been the mount program, which can only write the 
mtab file in /etc/. If this file is a symbolic link then mount will not 
write to it. People have wished that mount would follow a symlink so 
that it could point somewhere like /run/mtab. Thomas has developed a 
patch for this, so did Goswin von Brederlow." (includes links)
Wouldn't this be useful in Lunar ?
