a) This might be possible, and for sure, completing the documentation 
should be a top priority ... but you know ;-)
b) Not sure why we should provide a read-only test server for vfs as 
there are many write-tests one should do too.
And the vfs tests expect a certain amount of files/directories and their 
And even if we are try to do this, think of the various different 
filesystem: sftp, smb, webdav, ...

However i use a UML-Linux (UserModeLinux - something like vmware but for 
linux only) server which is configured in a manner that the vfs tests 
can pass (read and write).
On every restart of this uml-linux instance the whole system is in a 
clear state and every update has been rollbacked.

If it is allowed to provide a e.g. 70 MB download at apache i could 
simply upload it and everyone can use it to do the tests.
