I would be an interested party. Sometime in the future I'd like the
ability to add to C++ filesystem namespaces which are implemented by
a process-local abstraction layer which transforms high level
filesystem operations into something else. This sounds not dissimilar
to what you're doing.

I would be particularly interested in being able to substantially
extend the file path syntax with useful new capabilities. Like VMS
