I have a directory with files it in. Lets call it /opt/files - Is it possible to have those show up in each users home directory so they could be accessed with /home/$user/public_html/files ?

In my case the files would be read only. I would want them to behave like symlinks rather than being copies to save disk space.

I know I could setup a mountpoint for /opt/files, but the users would have to access it with "/opt/files". And if I understand correctly, the files are copied to /usr/share/cagefs-skeleton/opt/files. So its double the disk space (which isnt terrible). But it is only about double right?
