Mounting MogileFS?

First of all, is anyone running mogilefs under a FUSE setup at all? I 
know there've been two FUSE implementations, but no clue if they're in use.

mitcheloc: If you want the "lowest" latency, you probably won't be 
getting that if you have to mount mogilefs. The biggest access speedup 
comes from caching paths returned from the tracker, so the front end 
system may query that out of memcached and directly access the files.

I don't believe a webdav mount would work either... Take a closer look 
into how everything works.
