Having just lurked on the discussions about the bugs in here, I don't
think this is ready. Maybe they got fixed, but if so, it was recent
and it was pretty fundamental.

The stated aim of the series is to make the mount API _better_, not
worse. And right now it looks like a "two steps back, one theoretical
step forwards" kind of better.
