Cool! B-) Don't forget to send a patch to Linus when it is done for inclusion 
in the standard Linux kernel ;-)

I think this file system can become very interesting for embeded Linux. 
Imagine these:
* You have a router and send him via Jabber a command to retrieve the logs. A 
script on the router that uses jabberfs archives the logs in a tar.gz file 
(and maybe it even encrypts it with your public GPG key!). Then it sends this 
file to you! :o)
* A network camera that can send you up to date pictures/movies through Jabber 
(even more cool with TINS!).

I see you use the commands "cat" and "less" in the examples to read incoming 
messages. Isn't the command "tail -f" better to do this?

Mvg, Sander Devrieze.
