I do a similar thing, mounting an extra partition as read-only using /etc/fstab.
I my home, i have a symbol link to the actual startup script on the extra partition.
It is easy to remount the extra partition read/write when i have to update a project (which is usually simply a transfer from my laptop using rsync)

best, Thomas
