I don't believe this is a major issue. Alias, vvFat is readonly and anyways not
suitable for the purposes of every OS (e.g. copy from Linux guest to Linux
host, preserving ownership).

Like I said, modifying TFTP for R/W would be a good option. It's already there,
the "miminalists" can't complain about having it removed (e.g. it may one day
be used to support "virtual" netboots), and one can use ftp clients for the
tftp server (I think).

But windows host has native SMB support. Surely the wrapper could be altered
to support using SMB via win32 ?

Infinite complexity begets infinite beauty.
Infinite precision begets infinite perfection.
