The interesting question is how the interface between the mux and the
browser processes should look like. Just files in the same formats
doesn't seem a good idea to me - complex and doesn't scale well.

Maybe we could even move out the whole accessor logic into that dmux,
(which then could also support various storage formats) - the browser
just treats it like kind of an (special purpose) database server.

Perhaps we could map it directly to fileystem semantics, the browsers
can still run on their own (but now using their special fs layout),
and the mux is just a tiny fileserver (eg. via 9P).

The "big hog" (as I already called it) would then mount all the
corresponding fs services (cookies, bookmarks, sessions, etc living
in their own servers) before starting the individual browsers and
acts as a supervisor.
