The documentation I read was that it was acceptable to use folders,
rather than mountpoints, for OpenAFS.

Specifically: I'm running this OpenAFS server inside a jail right now,
and the underlying file system is ZFS.

Why is your suggestion a "bad idea in general"?  Is it less stable?
Less performant?
