It would be doable. You'd have to fake a real disk around it, but it's 
easier than the fake vfat support. You could probably pay Fabrice to do it 
for you.

Well, that is not true. You would run into all kind of problems, because 
OSes do not like to share control over a hard disk. They just don't expect 
that something changed, and make inconsitent changes themselves.
