When I looked at this some time ago I decided it wouldn't work because
not all packages respect being install outside /opt/csw.  Install scripts
don't (all) check the installation for fake or real root.

It's not a requirement for the CSW packages.  I think it could be but
I've largely avoided the need by doing zone dances.  One can update a
spare zone while a another does the work.  ZFS snapshot the zone root
and rollback if needed.
