Yes, this is the lack. I have proposed some time ago to give some money
(this will not be thousands of euros but at least some hundreds) so that
someone(TM) maybe Reinoud Zandijk could work on this.

IMHO, it's something that is worth adding since a cross-system FS is the
solution for sharing (once more: not serving distributed data; but at
least sharing).
