The problem with that would be that there is just a single global to
configure if the file can be opened read, write or readwrite.

Other that that, I just like having everything in a single directory
like /dev/console which is entirely virtual.

So I would prefer using libnetfs.  What would you like to see (and of
course, accept)?
