It's not that I don't appreciate a good joke from time to time, but you 
either need to seriously reconsider the daily dosage of whatever you're 
taking or wait with those emails until April 1st.

On a more serious, I'm very glad someone is thinking about implementing 
a common vfs layer but I hate to be the one to tell you that right now 
it's not going to be you. Don't take it personally, but you don't seem 
to have a clue about what you're talking about. And I'm sorry but your 
dockbook document is just embarrassing. It probably stems from your 
lack of understanding of both vfs subsystems or just ignorance of how 
integration between desktops works.

"Corba for IPC (DBUS can't be used here, because this requires 
heavy-weight IPC)" is something I'm considering putting in my list of 

But again, I very much appreciate your effort but as of now you just 
don't have enough knowledge to implement it. You are of course more 
than welcome to try and experiment but as it stands you could never 
realistically expect that we would even consider using it. The most 
realistic thing you can hope for is that people who either were or are 
actually involved in creating VFS layers and desktop environments get 
together on one of the conferences and nail this out. It's not going to 
happen anytime soon though.


Notice: Your mouse has been moved. Windows will now restart so this
change can take effect.
