Thanks for the reply, I'll take a look at FIDQuery.
Unfortunately, that's basically what I'm trying to do, is get paths that
contain the key in the URL. I was hoping to use MogileFS as sort of a
two-in-one distributed file system and mirror system, where you could
download the file directly from the storage node. It seems that isn't how
MogileFS was intended to be used, it only serves as an application-level
utility. Am I correct?
