As for now, there is (probably) not. IMHO it would be useful to add an
option to DHT, to use load balancing approach instead of hash function.
Combined with no-hashed-lookup, this would effectively restore the
functionality of unify, at a cost of stat'ing each filesystem before file
creation. I understand that this approach does not scale, but the additional
cost is acceptable for a small number of subvolumes.

Seems to work, I'm using it ;).
