Bug#145721: ITP: libferris -- a virtual file system (VFS) that runs in userspace

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

libferris is a virtual filesystem that exposes hierarchical data of all
kinds through a common C++ interface. Access to data is performed using
C++ IOStreams and Extended Attributes (EA) can be attached to each datum
to present metadata. Ferris uses a plugin API to read various data
sources and expose them as contexts and to generate interesting EA.
Current implementations include Native (kernel disk IO with event
updates using fam), xml (mount an xml file as a filesystem), edb (mount
a berkeley database), ffilter (mount an LDAP filter string) and mbox
(mount your mailbox). EA generators include image, audio, and animation
