  This is the point in every conversation of this type where I feel the
need to point out that a filesystem is a database.  The most used
database in the world is probably UFS (demonstrable simply through the
volume of data that moves through USENET every day).

  There are a number of advantages to using a VFS layer abstraction to a
database engine, not the least of which is the ability to manipulate the
database with the same tree tools that are used to manage files in your
development environment.
