lufs - linux userspace file system

just started trying this out, very cool indeed. Linux Userspace FS, it's a kernel module that allows you to mount userspace filesystems, like gnome-vfs (which includes smb, nntp, http, cdda, and many more) and sshfs and ftpfs. i'm still only just starting to play with this. but essentially, i can mount all my home directories on various machines (eg. webserver, srcf.ucam.org, lce, etc) via ssh. and even more freaky is that i can mount things like http, so imagine mounting site's index / page and copying all the links off it just like copying files from one directoy to another... oh .. this is so cool .. i'm going to go backto play .. :)
