We have created a virtual filesystem using MySQL as storage, using 
the LD_PRELOAD version of AVFS. The filesystem logic is written in 
Perl (embedded perl interpreter). It works for shell utils, proftpd, 
samba, and (not well tested yet) netatalk, and I'm sure WebDAV, NFS 
and other services could be served from it as well. It's even quite 
fast, the limiting factor is generally the client (Windows Explorer / 
Mac Finder / FTP Client / whatever). It will still take some time 
until I get to package the sources, though. See
