[BusyBox] What does it mean when I find bugs in the standard mount?

So I'm testing the behavior of my mount against the util-linux mount in
ubuntu, and guess what? The util-linux mount goes _nuts_ in some obvious
corner cases. Try this:
mount /dev/ram0 ./ram
mount --bind ram ./bind
mount --move bind move
That last command umounts "ram" and "move", even though A) it wasn't asked to,
B) there's nothing mounted on bind. It did this because "/etc/mtab" got
confused. This is another reason to just symlink that to /proc/filesystems
(which my rewrite makes work very very well, thanks. Including with loopback
Right: _my_ version works properly, which is all I'm focusing on at present...
Still working on it. I'll post wherever I get to before stopping for the
night (morning, or possibly early afternoon by that point with enough
caffeine), even if it's not actually quite done yet...
