I actually once started such a thing, LD_PRELOAD-based. But it never took off 
due to spare time problems. Unfortunately, with glibc LD_PRELOAD is not a 
real solution, as they won't promise that you can catch all the various 
flavours of stat(). (search on their ML, I got that from the archives)
A kernel-based solution would be much less portable.
But you could at least try to integrate it with Gnome's VFS layer.
