I'm wondering if we need a big file tree in BOB.. Something like this
might be useful for the AI, to remember things and to make
associations quickly..
What exactly is your idea about the use of this VFS in BOB?


Take for instance finding a free device.

Normally you'd have a system call that would find a certain free device for
you and allocate it, but that adds yet another 'namespace'.

Instead of a seperate system call a query '[class/camera free]' would do
just the same.
