I think we are talking about two different things here:

- How to interact with the DS (thus only in the XO) using standard
tools. A FUSE plugin?

- How we can aid in debugging the internal structures of the DS.
Again, only on the XO.

If the process of moving files from the XO to another machine involves
the FUSE plugin, then files will come out from there with names based
on their title.

What else is missing?
