I worked on creating a virtual filesystem
Such functionality really should be in a real file-system, so that you
don't have to require special libraries to use either zip files, sql
databases, or ftp as your backend file-system.
I just cringe everytime I see yet another virtual file-system library,
you have one for GNU Midnight Commaner, then you have one for GNOME,
you have tramp in Emacs, etc. This should be in a lower level of the
operting system, so that all programs make use of whatever fancy
features one has without having to modify them.
Did I say that the Hurd supports for all of this? ;-)
