You suggest to bind mount the underlying directory from the host OS?
I suppose that we could do that for the root file system anywhere inside
the image file system?
Once I restart the container should be transparent to the container that
the underlying file-system has mounted from a different location?
That sound right... I was thinking about it in a much more complicated way
like you would a VDI for a VM. That is better.
