On OSNews is a pointer to a short tutorial entitled Develop your own filesystem with FUSE. FUSE is Filesystem in Userspace, a module with which a filesystem, probably any kind of file system, can be developed in a user space (contrary to kernel space) program. There is also a list of filesystems based on FUSE. That got me thinking: Imagine an LDAPfuse filesystem:

$ cd /ldap
$ ls
$ cd dc=fupps,dc=com
$ cd ou=People
$ grep cn: uid=jpm

Now, that would be cool. If only the days had more than twenty four hours and the night…
