I'm actually looking to do something a bit more high-level than the
file system itself, I just need pseudo-working versions of the fxxxx
stdio functions.

I'd like to expand the current capabilities of IO "devices" a bit
further (ie open/close/seek), but this fits in above the file system
level.  Eventually (ie when someone actually needs it!), a filesystem 
(talking to a raw device) could be implemented underneath this layer,
but I'm mostly interested in the high-level bit.

My goal is just to come up with a quick hack that'll let me get at the
host file system using a few syscalls, but I figure I may as well do
it in some way that might be useful to others :)
