Sheldon Hearn posted a patch to add such a knob around January when we
were having this exact discussion.  Personally, I think it only solves
half a problem; what if you want /tmp and /tmp2?  And why should it be
limited to boot-up?  Perhaps there's use for a program which emulates
mount_mfs using md.

I actually wrote a short program that emulates *all* of mount_mfs's
umpteen options with md, disklabel, and newfs, but nobody seemed
interested.  My choice of name (mount_md) wasn't particuarly good,
either.  Look at the -hackers and cvs-all archives around late January
and early February for the discussions.  I still have that program,
and it works great, so perhaps I should make it a port (comments?).
