schroot can't handle unionfs-fuse

Bug Description

Binary package hint: schroot

Currently, UnionFS does not work with schroot in Ubuntu: this happens because UnionFS is implemented with fuse, and 'mount -t unionfs' fails.

Quick but working fix attached.

This should really be added as a separate union type, since unionfs and unionfs-fuse require different logic.

I'll be happy to include such a feature. Please mail the patch to the upstream mailing list or file a bug in the Debian BTS.
