"They" would really be me :)

I looked at how we use VFS in our software at work and saw a lot of code
that I felt should be in VFS, features like:

- Ask a FileObject simple questions like isFile() and isFolder() .
- Do a bulk operation like FileObject.deleteAll().
- Write FileContents to different kinds of objects like FileObject,
FileContent and OutputStream.
- and other stuff and trickles down from that.
