I did not know about the VFS idea until know. Do you have a rough
estimate when this will be implemented. (Of course I need the interface
now :)

This would do. I had in fact already checked that mod_negotiation is
actually doing file system calls hoping it might do a sub request for
the type map. 

There is probably some grand unified approach ahead, with filter layers
between VFSes that besides the usual filter stuff do URL rewriting. Such
an approach needs to be very well specified to keep it simple enough to
be usable.
