    A penal system could be created, for example if someone is caught
    introducing a bug, he will have to choose three additional reports
    from bugzilla and analyze/fix them ;)

    8 now, someone just sent a private mail about bindings for the Pliant
    (never heard of it) language.

    I think you are wrong there. You don't appreciate all the complexity
    FUSE _lacks_ by not being network transparent. Just look at the error
    text to errno conversion muck that v9fs has. And their problems with
    trying to do generic uid/gid mappings.

    > there seems to be no interest in working on that.

    It would mean adding a plethora of extensions to the 9P protocol, that
    would take away all it's beauty. I think you should realize that
    these are different interfaces for different purposes. There may be
    some overlap, but not enough to warrant trying to massage them into
    one big ball.

    Do you promise? I can do a resplit and submit to Linus, if that takes
    some load off you.
