I would suggest:
vfs options = "quoted string"
...and just let the VFS module grab and parse the quoted string. We'd
need to make sure that the VFS module knows when the value changes, but I
think that the normal mechanism would work. I'd hate to have to do a
call-back, but that might be an option.
