Goofy Late Night Idea?

OK, so for whatever reason this thought just popped into my head and I
think it would be a pretty cool feature for a database to have.

# From a remote server you type...

ftp server_name port

# Then use normal ftp commands...
cd resumes
put 134564.doc

Normally the file would be on a server someplace, but I am thinking it
would be cool if Oracle could expose a table, such as RESUMES, as an ftp
service/directory.  So when the 'put' is done the file is stored in
RESUMES table in the database.  Basically it would be a Oracle owned ftp
service which allows you to use normal ftp commands from another server
to interact directly with an Oracle table by adding, getting and
removing files.

I sure with a little code you could write something that basically does
this but it would be neat if it was something your could just configure
with a little DDL.

Oh well, like I said, just a late night thought.
