That would be really nice. With that and the named pipe abstraction
that metze has been working on we should be able to offer the s3
fileserver backend as a viable option for s4 users.

I'd eventually like to make this per-share, but doing it for all file
services will work in the short term.

It should also allow the s3 printing code to work in s4, which would
be a nice bonus. All the VFS modules should also work. It will need a
lot of testing, but I think at least the principle is sound.

Cheers, Tridge
