Excellent! I've added support in CVS, and I'll do a new release this

Done. Cool, it looks like it even handles recursive mounts.

Exactly. For me, one of the big things about the MountedFileStorage is
the ability to split out the data for various sections of the tree - I
still want to be able to make ZClass instances, but I don't want to have
to manage copying all products all over the place.

The next MountedFS release will have a teeny tiny Control_Panel like 
thing in the root of the mountpoint. I'll try putting a Products folder
in it.
