I would expect this behavior. The question is if this is bad or not. I
don't doubt that it is not clean from the style point of view, but I
would expect that the files are correctly removed on deinstall of nero.

It is not shared via the symlink directly, it's shared by the nature
of the linuxulator to fall through to the FreeBSD path if the
/compat/linux/ one is not there. So there's already some sort of
unionfs there, just not with the complete unionfs semantics.

I haven't. I'm not aware of anyone who has.
