% ^DATA FILE^NETWORK PROTOCOL

[henning@babsi ipv4]% ls *masq*
ip_masq.c ip_masq_cuseeme.c ip_masq_irc.c ip_masq_raudio.c
ip_masq_app.c ip_masq_ftp.c ip_masq_quake.c ip_masq_vdolive.c
[henning@babsi ipv4]% pwd
/usr/src/linux-2.0.37/net/ipv4

Yes. Where is the problem? We already do this. As I understood, you
don't put the data file formats in the kernel but a loadable
abstraction layer which allows one application to use resource forks
and another one a representation as dot-files, subdirectories, you
name it. I would consider this a "cool thing (TM)".

Kind regards
Henning
