DatabaseFS VFS module

I have created a VFS module which implements a fairly complete read-only 
filesystem.  It presents information from a database as a filesystem in 
a modular and generic way to allow different databases to be used 
(originally designed for organizing MP3s under directories such as 
"Artists," "Song Keywords," etc... I have since applied it to a student 
roster database very easily).  The directory structure is stored in the 
database itself and the module makes no assumptions about the database 
structure beyond the table it requires to run.  You can find it at:

Any feedback would be appreciated: comments, suggestions, patches, 
etc...  If nothing else, hopefully it might prove useful for someone 
else who wishes to create a virtual filesystem.

Thanks for the great product and keep up the good work.
