I got the impression that fuse4bsd is abandoned with Alex Beckert's
mail (he said last commit 17 months ago, last release in 2007). It's a
pity that it was never merged in FreeBSD src tree, I think then it
would be better maintained.
PUFFS looks promising because it was merged in NetBSD, but I didn't
know about the limitations you describe.
