I never got round to implementing my solution to the 'loopback device
under symlinked /etc/mtab' problem.
basically I was going to allow 'named loopback devices' to be created so
that mount could intelligently umount loopback devices when you
unmounted the fs that was on them.
its probably a very trivial kernel mod. I should look into it again
