Well you can package the hobbit client so that all variables are linke  
to the non read-only mount part of the non-global zone. You have to  
install this package in the global zone, but can configure it  
differently in every non global zone. The output of the hobbit client  
directory then looks like this:
rw at dns15:~$ ls -l /opt/hobbit/client/
total 18

I can if you want sent you complete instruction on how to build a  
solaris package for a hobbit client if you want (I can only give u an  
smf manifest for CNS if you know what that is ;-).

So long
