I know about it, but AFAIK it fakes filesystems by hooking the libc calls (via LD_PRELOAD, which we now support), which i a bit hackish... Also, from the description it seems they map metadata as files or directories, because the POSIX model isn't rich enough. But maybe we can find a way to bridge it better. > Unfortunately it is GNU GPL licensed. Yeah, as usual... François.
