Maximum mountpoints + chrooted login

I was thinking of doing a chrooted login for some ssh accounts.
The plan is this:

put stuff in

Then at login time mount them to
as readonly

chroot to /home/user


And then unmount them at logout time.

Does this seem like a bad idea?
(then please tell me why :))

One problem could be the _massive_ mounts, 3*online_users.
Are there any limits/drawbacks doing it like this?
Should i hardlink stuff instead? (worse maintainability).

Just a funny idea i have...
Hit me.
