Not knowing enough about the VFS layer...

This will, I assume, work no matter what real FS is underneath, yes?  
Also, are we able to stack VFS layers well enough to make sure the 
mangling doesn't conflict with other VFS implementations?

Just curious.

Would be nice to be able to swap out the mangling like that.
