How are you going to avoid your users mounting multiple times?

[ian@dominatrix ian]$ fs mkm fnord web.user.ian
[ian@dominatrix ian]$ fs ls fnord
'fnord' is a mount point for volume '#web.user.ian'
[ian@dominatrix ian]$

(this volume is mounted a couple other times in my AFS tree, and I'm
not an administrator when doing this)
