  That looks great. I would have called it the 'parent' mount point 
rather than the 'underlying' mount point, but that's semantics.

Only thing missing is a reference to fact that these fixes apply also to 
hardware points such as /dev/dvb etc.

And a side point that sometimes, folders like /run/mythtv just do NOT 
get created. Something about /run. I am using 
/var/log/mythtv/backend.pid as /run/mythtv/backend.pid always fails on 
Fedora 17.

Regarding where it showed up, there is some special incantation of "[[[" 
or whatever to create a new page UNDER an existing page. I don't know 
how, I only know that it is tricky.
