One other thing that may be useful is stackable VFS modules.  Suppose I had
two VFS modules: one that did auditing and one that did virus checking.
Under the current model, I would have to decide which one I wanted (or
write a new one that incorporated both feature sets).  If they were
stackable, I could have the functionality of both with no real troubles.
