OK, think about file length.  What file size to report?  Before we do
the translation or after?  What about a partial read?  I want 5k at the
end of a 600Mb file - I now have to 'convert' that file to figure out
where that 5k actaully is.

This is before we even start on the various other issues that make this
a non-starter.  If you really want to do this, write a VFS module.
