Just a thought if boost file-system could be user-configurable with boost
iostreams library we could have a nice, clean API for virtual file-systems
(VFS) not just for the OS file-system.
For example the other day an associate of mine wanted to be able to
read/write/etc to a zip file like a OS file-system, he couldn't use boost
iostream's zip filter since it doesn't apparently provide that kind of
behaviour/abstraction but boost file-system does provide that kind of
abstraction/behaviour the only problem is it's pretty much tied to working
with OS file-systems only as far as i'm aware.
