SubjectRe: Has it been done: User Script File System?

http://uservfs.sourceforge.net

Also, have a look at the hostfs filesystem in UML. It implements a virtual
filesystem which provides access to the host filesystems from inside the
virtual machine. The userspace side of it is basically trivial to implement
and can be used to provide filesystem access to anything on the host that can
be made to look like a filesystem.

See http://cvs.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/user-mode-linux/linux/arch/u
m/fs/hostfs/hostfs_user.c?rev=1.11&content-type=text/vnd.viewcvs-markup for
the interface that you'd have to implement.
