This is really a non-issue. 1) Non-root users won't be able to unmount
/, /home, etc. 2) Even root can't unmount a filesystem that's in use.
Go ahead: open a terminal, 'su' to root, and type 'umount /'. Watch
while it says "device is busy" and just ignores you. If you unmount a
filesystem that isn't in use, then... so what? Nothing bad will happen.
