What we really need, is a new file system! :)
I like the way DOS_DRIVE/NFA_DRIVE work in QPC2/SMSQmulator. You can
"root" the device DOS/NFA anywhere in the host's filing system. The
result is transparent to the rest of the system. This would be a way
forward for any new filing system: The old (current) way of doing
things could just be a hooked to the new in a similar way. Any old
software would just continue to use the old system. On the emulators
weve basically got a new file system already. "All" it would take

temperature here drops to non-tropical levels (it's now 35C :( ).
Another solution would be to make the DIR command 'substitution-aware' so
it would recognise a substituted device and act accordingly.
But then you have to do the same for QPAC2, QMenu, ...
Agreed. Wouldn't it be great if we would only see the names of the files
within a subdirectory and not the subdirectories themselves every time? But
I expect that this might break some other programs as well...
