A remark for this: once you have a 1:1 representation of data
structs and fs, you could use Uriels shifs to develop a better
highlevel fs-structure (instead of editing the source code all
along and changing the fs hierarchy with each release) - you
could even supply different kinds of fs-structures as a
front-end access.
