But as a generic question: is there a way to get the installer to put
some top-level directories into subdirectories on a different volume
so they share space but aren't part of the root volume?  You can do
each as a separate mount point, but sometimes I want the effect you
get with symlinks - which involves some awkward juggling for
system-installed directories that already have contents.
