Re: [eclipse-incubator-e4-dev] [resources] File system layer requirements

re "beef up the FS layer" -- I'd like to at least understand whether we can do a better job of modeling the capabilities of particular filesystems, as we currently do for case sensitivity. Obviously, I'm thinking about some of the more unusual features of the filesystems on System z and i, but I could also imagine trying to model model things like the potential for high latencies (as a way to decide whether or not to use async APIs), for example.

Interesting idea. I've personally not seen modeling of file systems in this way (i.e. latency, variability, failure info)...has anyone else?...but it is an intriguing notion.
