Yep. I originally moved code from g_file_storage to g_mass_storage (and
g_multi) but after David's objections the patches have been dropped so
currently only g_file_storage has this code.

This should be a straightforward patch. If no one else does it
I can post it but it may take up to a month for me to find the time
to work on it.
