This is a good idea.  Is it possible to do this already?  How do I
make a filesystem depend on fshelp.mod?  I assume by using one of its
symbols.  Is the dependancy code in CVS already?

I will change this and make the changes suggested by Thomas before
committing this.  I have some ideas to make things more efficient for
some kinds of filesystems, I will implemented this as well.
