Thanks for the link. Seems there are several "learn from their
mistakes" scenarios I can choose from. Main thing is I want the
stability of the existing filesystem (whichever), while adding
a new access mode on top of it. If the application ever did
operations on regular fs data it would go through the regular fs

It is why I like the virtual tables solution (db records link
to stat calls), the critical data is never duplicated accept for
optimization indices and it is a path that can produce a working
application for requirement testing before an optimal application
is developed.
