I guess you could just disable the corresponding kernel module in the
config file.

My knowledge is not quite up-to-date but I know they (Clustermatic
team, Ron Minnich in particular) did interesting experiments with
Plan-9-like filesystem which could export filesystems and create
private namespaces on per-user basis. Then they did not pay too much
attention to this for some time; I do not know the current status.

You might get more details on the bproc list:
