    [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
