Bug#735177: ITP: fuseloop -- loopback mount using FUSE

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Johannes Schauer <j.schauer@email.de>

* Package name    : fuseloop
  Version         : 1.0.1
  Upstream Author : Johny Mattsson

  Description     : loopback mount using FUSE

Allows one to map parts of one file at a specific offset and with a specific
size to another file by using Filesystem in Userspace (FUSE). This allows one
to work around shortcomings of mke2fs or fuse-ext2 which allow to work on
regular files but do not allow to specify an offset or size that they should
work on. With fuseloop it is no longer necessary to create multiple files and
concatenate them together to create a full disk image (including a valid
partition table) in user space without superuser privileges.
