Yes, but if u:\ supported Frename() as I suggested, this will still work
with the desktop, ren etc. The applications doesn't know that there's
anything special about u:\, but the implementation must ofcourse differ
radically from Frename() in a real filesystem.

You still can't unmount partitions though (just move the mountpoint around),
but I really don't see the point of this either.

That's true, but obviously that's of no concern for those that want "proper"
mounting. However, it doesn't have to be a problem at all, just softlink the
mountpoint to / ...
