rationale behind posdir construction


Hi all,

I'm trying to get why the current posdir/posmountdir construction
exists. Isn't it easier to simply create a directory on the mounted
snapshot and include the files there? I don't see why you'd want to
create a directory in /tmp and then bindmount it to the backupdir. Of
course, I might simply be overlooking something. Can someone explain
it to me, please?
