You mean implement complete VFS ? Would be extremely interesting. Would be
very cool to be able to build FUSE backends. This way we could access
various filesystems, not supported by Windows. Or, if we are BSDish enough,
we could take BSD filesystem modules...
P.S. I know about Dokan project (http://dokan-dev.net/en/about/), but at
least on my machine it didn't work, simply crashed. Additionally, i'm not
sure if i can take source code of FUSE filesystem and build it for Dokan.
