Again, I think you're misunderstanding my suggestion.  I'm suggesting
to do this:

public class FileSystemException extends RuntimeException

as opposed to

public class FileSystemException extends IOException

This makes all VFS's exceptions unchecked.  They can be caught if you
want or they can be propagated up the call stack without having to
wrap them up and do it yourself.
