But if you only merge flat directories without subdirectories (as bins
usually are), there is no difference in shadowfs and your strategy.

The difference is that one treats directories special, and the other (yours)
treats directories like files, eg the top one in the root wins on a lookup.

I think it should be quite easy for shadowfs to do what you suggested.  How
about adding this feature as an option to shadowfs as Thomas proposed,
and send Moritz a patch?
