Haven't tried. It makes no sense to me to union/null fs /var and /tmp. Just 
/usr/local to share binaries or /usr in case you also want to share OS 
binaries, but for a dedicated jail, the gain of that is minimal (OS upgrade 
doesn't require an extra installworld with jail DESTDIR, but mergemaster still 
needs to be done and requires most operator attention).
