The Plastic File System 1.7

system looks like for programs. This allows virtual file systems to exist in
user space, without kernel hacks or modules.

It would be nice to see this added as sys-apps/plasticfs or some such.

The PlasticFS Ebuild
Seems to be an interesting app. The only problem is it won't work with glibc-2.2 and 2.3, unless we have a special version of glibc prepared (see http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?thread_id=2735794&forum_id=26320). Any comments on this?
I'd opt against this one. The changes to glibc are not something I'd really like to toy with to make this work. It's an intersting iea, but needs to be reworked some.
Any more updates on this? Perhaps the author of this bug report could comment. What does the rest of the kernel team think of this?
Plasticfs is not something which justifies toying with glibc. It appears the author lost interest, so I'm closing and marking won't fix.
