    No they wouldn't. You can do symlinks with powerful queries in
    userspace _today_ (as well as directories which list queries).

    Making queries be up to date in real-time is still a problem, but that
    has nothing to do with symlinks or directories, or where the parsers live.

    This is one occasion where you're mistaken :)

    There may be other reasons for parsing query strings in the kernel
    (though I'm not convinced there are any), but this isn't one.
