Yes, I strongly agree.  Being able to add this sort of thing via modules
would be very cool.  Now, you may or may not want to implement the
filesystem support as a moudule but that doesn't really matter.

Best book seen today: WebTV for dummies.  First, there were books like "C
for dummies".  You know, reasonably complex topic, cool that they are
calling people dummies.  Then there were books like "Netscape for
dummies", or even AOL for Dummies fits in here.  Those are books that you
go "god, anyone needing that must be a dummy."  But with WebTV for
dummies, all I think of is "yup, sounds like an appropriate book." 

I love some of the names of the dummies books though.

Client/Server Computing for Dummies.
Crossword Puzzles for Dummies
Bach for Dummies
Baroque for Dummies
Beer for Dummies
Bird Watching for Dummies
Business Plans for Dummies
Building an Intranet for Dummies
Cats for Dummies.  (by Gina Spadafori; read quickly that name looks like
someone else)
Cooking for Dummies (hmm... cna take that one two ways...)
Dating for Dummies
Nuclear Physics for Dummies (just kidding)
