  Description     : plastic (twistable, bendable, malleable) file system access

 The Plastic File System is an LD_PRELOAD module for manipulating how a
 program sees the filesystem.  This allows virtual filesystems to exist
 in userspace, without kernel hacks or modules.
 Plastic filesystems include:
  - ``viewpath'' which unions a set of directory trees in a view path
    so that they appear to be a single directory tree.
  - ``smartlink'' expands environment variables in symbolic links, using
    the standard $name syntax, like DG/UX did with its ``e-links''.
  - ``log'' transparently logs all file accesses, similar to strace.
  - and many others!
