Re: [vox-tech] Mounting remote filesystems redux

Slashdot mentioned about SHFS not too long ago, I think?  It actually
works over SSH (or RSH) by emulating keystrokes over the connection, but
locally it looks like a real file system.  Access is supposed to be fast
because files are cached.

Never used it but sounded interesting enough to keep it in mind.
