Open Source Libferris: Chasing the "Everything is a File System" Dream

The libferris project aims to provide a single file system interface for all data. I have been advancing libferris towards that goal over the last ten years. Over that time, libferris has gained support for mounting relational databases, physical devices like printers, webcams, and scanners, composite files like Berkeley DB and XML files, applications like Amarok, Firefox, emacs, pulseaudio, XWindow, dbus, and evolution, and more recently web services like GDrive, YouTube, Vimeo, Flickr, as well as many other things. I have some examples of command line use of some of these features here.
