You have no idea how much this is scaring me right now ;)
Over the last two weeks i spent a lot of time discussing a memcachefs
(fuse-based) with two fellow geeks - applications that came to mind
were (a) the smarty cache (b) php sessions; for both cases, losing
files (as a whole, not random parts inside) is ok and readdir is
irrelevant, which allows cutting a lot of corners.
We're also pondering using mysql as the write-through bit, instead of
an actual filesystem, which wouldmake the storage stable and allow
readdir. No code so far, though.
