	Unionfs could possibly do this, but it might be simpler to just sym- 
link all the files in the two directories into a third location and  
share that out.

	"% cp -sr [from] [to]"

	If the two sources and the destination are on the same filesystem,  
regular linking might be what you want (and might soothe less cluey  
services if they choke on symlinks):

	"% cp -lr [from] [to]"

	Not entirely sure what the result of nested source directories might  
be - go play!
