If you read the xdg list, you see this topic popping up every now and 
then. But there's not much progress in the discussion at any time. The 
best point was made by Havoc recently, who said that a VFS library 
shouldn't reimplement the POSIX API, but instead, implement a higher 
level API. Think in terms of 'read the contents of document A' instead 
of 'open document A', 'seek to position 50', 'read 10 bytes', ...
