This method may have been useful in the old days where large
harddisks were unavailable or hard to come by. Now we're living
in the age of terabyte disks, and setting up a VDR with 1TB of
video storage (even using a second disk to have a RAID-1 for
data safety) os no big deal any more.

Isn't LVM the keyword here?

At any rate, I want to get rid of that symlink stuff and allow
VDR to "see" only one big video directory. Of course there may
still be other volumes mounted on subdirectories of that video
directory.
