Interesting scheme. Not however impossible to handle. As far as Linux is
concerned so long as something talks to the VFS layer as a filesystem it
can do what it likes below. Thus you can have a file system that sits
over an ext2fs making calls through to ext2 but which hooks itself into
the namei handling to do type handlers.
