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.
