My idea was that we could come up with a beefed up EFS API that
provides access to features provided by JSR203, and learn from
its API decisions (actually some of them are in EFS already, 
such as atomic copyTo() / moveTo() operations, or throwing
exceptions rather than returning boolean in case of failure).

Because then we can have multiple implementations of the EFS API --
ranging from most basic ones (based on over medium
versatile ones (based on the current native liblocalfile) upto
a plugin based on Java7, which would likely have more features
but only run on a Java7 JRE only.
