Yes, and apart from the fact that you can have multiple directory entries with exactly the same name, it all works fine in resierfs. How much value it is is entirely a separate question. Back in 1997 I did another hack called dwnfs: this took DynaWeb, which used stylesheets to convert SGML/XML into HTML and derived navigable TOC's at runtime, and layered an NFS server I wrote on top of it... that way you could navigate 200MB SGML files as though they were directories and HTML pages... change the stylesheets and the pages and directories would change. That got really interesting when we then served that file system using HTTP, so we ended up with SGML + stylesheets --- http --> dwnfs -- http --> browser All in a very RESTish manner (no RPC over HTTP, just URLs). I still have the code for this (and FWIW. the code includes good examples of embedding scripts in XML....). IMHO. dwnfs was more valuable than shredding XML into a filesystem...
