    How do you treat links? Can you do 'cat
    index.html/file-that-is-linked-from-index.html' ? how do you, then, treat
    circular links?

    The problem here is that HTTP is content-oriented, not file system
    oriented. Someone has done this for FTP (where it _does_ make sense)
    already, I'll have to dig out the patch. I think a file system for HTTP is
    kind of pointless.

    Do a 'cache slow media on fast ones' file system instead, that will benefit
    many people. like "mount server:/home -o cache=/tmp/nfs.cache,40960" :-)

    Just my EUR 0.02...
