You could just use a RaaA specific configuration file (wouldn't you
need one anyway, to setup other environment things specific to the
device like screen resolution?) to set that root. Or even allow
setting arbitrary virtual "drives" (though I really hate the drives
concept and like the unix mountpoint thing much better). Setting such
values via command line as a first shot implementation isn't a bad
thing IMO. Such a way wouldn't be suitable for users of course.

OTOH, I would prefer exposing the complete file system to the user, as
I expect of any hosted application.
