It allows you to mount multiple network shares, but shows them all in one location as a sort of 'overlay' view. Duplicate directories are shown have their contents merged, but remain intact on the actual shares/filesystem.

If nothing else, you could create ans script that would create symlinks 
from all files in those directories into single one. I use that 
technique to create combined repository directory for mrepo.
