public bool is_shadowed ()

Determines if this is shadowed.

Applications or libraries should avoid displaying this in the user interface if it is shadowed.

A mount is said to be shadowed if there exists one or more user visible objects (currently Mount objects) with a root that is inside the root of this .

One application of shadow mounts is when exposing a single file system that is used to address several logical volumes. In this situation, a VolumeMonitor implementation would create two Volume objects (for example, one for the camera functionality of the device and one for a SD card reader on the device) with activation URIs `gphoto2://[usb:001,002]/store1/` and `gphoto2://[usb:001,002]/store2/`. When the underlying mount (with root `gphoto2://[usb:001,002]/`) is mounted, said VolumeMonitor implementation would create two Mount objects (each with their root matching the corresponding volume activation root) that would shadow the original mount.

The proxy monitor in GVfs 2.26 and later, automatically creates and manage shadow mounts (and shadows the underlying mount) if the activation root on a Volume is set.
