I'd really like that, since it would mean that all the
filesystem-touching functions (not the path decomposition ones, for
instance) would get a filesystem context. That would allow all sorts
of possibly-interesting VFS operations, like merging directories
transparently to consumers of a filesystem.
It would also help make clearer the difference between, for example, a
path simplification function that only looks at the path, and a path
canonicalization function that needs to look at the filesystem too
