about sfs limit
barry .. gladly i can post on here again :-)
why was the reason we are limited to 5 sfs files is it still pertinient?
AFAIK there is little slowdown upon haveing many sfs files mounted with the recent squashfs implementations
perhaps this is worth testing? I does happen to be one of the things we explain over and over on IRC

RE: number of sfs files
Yes, there is a slowdown. I don't recall how I came up with the limit of 3 extra sfs files. It probably does need to be tested.
Also, the 'init' script in the initial ramdisk, and /etc/rc.d/rc.update do some fixups of whiteout files if a change is detected in the sfs layers, or there is a version update, and this can take some time. The more layers, the longer it can take, although it is a one-off thing.
