My only idea was a file system option to just skip the auto creation of 
folders when looking at the paths.  Just use them when this is on and 
don't attempt to create them.  Don't even verify they exist in the 
directory listing?

I think this equates to some system options honored in 
AbstractFileObject to skip the parent/folder traversal/creation stuff.

Or an alternative implementation of FileObject that does something like
