    Hmm...couldn't this better be implemented as a userspace nfsd,
    presenting a virtual filesystem based on backup data - e.g. amanda's
    index files?

    Of course, actually trying to *do* anything with the files might cause
    an "insert tape number xx" error message, and the request would have to
    be delayed.

    If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
