Hi Bret,

I shouldn't have said unavoidable, but "practically unavoidable"...

I'm aware of AMIS. I could implement it in vmsmount. Then you'll only
have to convince the maintainers of shsucdx, doslfn and some more or
less popular proprietary tsrs like ntfs4dos... :)

Please, don't get me wrong. I think AMIS is a great idea, maybe just a
bit too late, and I'm open to consider it for a future release if it
is worth the effort.
