Not sure exactly what you are trying to accomplish... without knowing your 
intentions, I would think it'd be cleaner to move your data outside the tree 
anyway, and symlink from the data directory to the mountpoint.  That way, if 
you decided to use app-1.0 instead of 1.2, it'd just be a matter of changing 
the symlink from the 1.0 data directory to point to your mount, instead of 
remounting the volume...
