Wouldn't a couple of symbolic links from one drive to the other work?
If filesystem /A has directories foo, bar and baz, and filesystem /B
has quux, quuux and quuuux, then do:
ln -s /A/foo /B
ln -s /A/bar /B
ln -s /A/baz /B
Obviously, this will only work if your directories are all
pre-existing, but it seems that it'll get you most of the way.
