>    Affects Versions: 2.0.4-alpha

> The current FileSystem open() method throws a generic IOException in its API specification.
> Some FileSystem implementations (DFS, RawLocalFileSystem ...) throws more specific FileNotFoundException
if the path does not exist.  Some throws IOException only (FTPFileSystem, HftpFileSystem ...).

> If we have a new FileSystem implementation, what should we follow exactly for open()?
> What should the application expect in this case.
