Just one thing. Since we would end up with a system where each device is a
filesystem of some type how does this fit into devfs. I can't imagine
having a fstab file with 20 some filesystems for different types of
devices. I like to see the ability to mount device filesystems but I like
to have them all mounted at one time at boot time. Of course their might
be some users who don't feel this way. They might want to count what gets
mounted where. I guess devfsd could be expaned to handle this.
