Right. Splecialized streams will be needed as well.
If boost::path contain some information about filesystem kind,
than boos::fstream can open correct stream.
  I suspect that sooner or later boost will deal with archive
files ... and filesystem/fstream looks like good candidate for dealing
with them.

  My question was inspired by "Far" file manager, which has
a lot of plugins working with real and simulated filesystems.
