The existing work around to install into
/nix via a new APFS volume, and mounting as rw in
vifs, no longer appears to work. The volume simply won't mount.

The fact that mounting a volume using
synthetic.conf in Big Sur isn't working seems like a bug, and Apple is aware of it. It remains to be seen whether it will be fixed, but I'm hopeful, as this was one of the two primary use-cases for
synthetic.conf and it would be pretty bad for Apple to introduce this mechanism in one release only to break it in the next.
