The thing one cannot underline enough is that right now you cannot
operate on the static, vendor-shipped, read-only data in a single
command. But you need exactly that for handling OS snapshots, and for
doing proper state-less systems. Why? because taking individual
snapshots of /bin, /sbin, /lib/, /lib64, /usr is not atomic, but taking
one of /usr alone is.
