To be honest I have little interest. True it would allow a little
more flex ability, but the downside for me would be significant. I
like having only a single image to work with, and not having to mess
around with partition tables.
For me personally when I want a large /home I either make a huge
disk image, or add a role script to use NFS mounted storage from
If there is overwhelming desire for this kind of thing I could
be persuaded, but my initial reaction is to ignore it completely..
