Wow Jeff, that would be excellent.
I'm sure you hear this all the time, but your work is great!

Is there any clever way to reset the root password for users, aside

I'm finishing up a new hostfs-like filesystem which I want to become the
preferred mechanism to boot UMLs because of its ability to mmap data from
the host, eliminating duplicate copies of file data in memory.

A side-effect of this is that UML filesystems will become visible on the
host, so password changing would be a matter of chrooting to the filesystem
and running passwd.

Currently, there is no COW functionality, but I plan to add file-level COWing
with block-level COWing possibly following later.
