Not sure if we are agreeing to the same thing ;-) I guess what I was
meaning to say is "can we put the logic in a library _instead of_
putting it in a FUSE layer?".

As I read the Olpcfs document (few weeks ago now), what I understood
is that Olpcfs lays out a mostly POSIX-based convention, but uses a
FUSE layer to store things.

Did I completely misunderstand it?
