I'm using fstab to bind a folder that belongs to another user in one of my own directories. I know that I can map users when I mount an SSHFS, I've been doing some research and I can't find a mount --bind equivalent.

Is there any way I can mount another user's folder and files as my own?

Update: It doesn't necessarily have to be mount --bind. It just has to do something similar while mapping users, and can be done on startup.
