Directory listings in particular are interesting because;

   * mod_proxy_ftp LIST/NLST contents would be a special case that could
     be handled through the usual mod_dir/mod_autoindex modules.

   * mod_ftp would prepare it's directory listing through this VFS layer.

   * virtual (alias, mount) resources could appear in the virtualized
     index listing.
