The original plan for the design was going to use a pipe or socket in order to 
transfer the information.  Registering a device seems to be a step that doesn't 
need to be taken, furthermore, utilizing a pipe or socket would be a direct 
means by which sqlfs and sqlfsd could communicate.  Using a device seems to 
allow for a more generalized usage of each, but I'm not quite sure how either 
would interpret exactly what's going on.  For example, would running something 
like /dev/zero >> /dev/sqlfsxx zero out all tables in the database?  With this 
type of approach it seems we now have to cover three ends, the first end being 
how sqlfs handles filesystem requests, the second end being how sqlfsd 
translates the information and pushes it back to sqlfs, and the final end being 
how /dev/sqlfsxx will work as a traditional device.
