Thanks! That one is interesting but unfortunately not usable for four

First, it does not allow to access kernel structures. Second, it is slow
because for every request two very expensive (compared to direct function
calls) context switches must be made. Third, it only exposes the kernel VFS
layer interface (which I don't intend to use). Fourth, it could easily
result in endless loops or (less likely) deadlocks.

But it would be cool to port this module to Chicken and to make an egg
of it.
