DirectoryViews would mean you'd lose #4.

If you really need to, you have the "customize" button for temporary patches.

Also, if you have any persistent objects for which there isn't an existing
FSObject-derived version, you'd have to write one.

GenericSetup likely covers those ;-)

Another issue is that AFAIK there's no way to control the refresh
interval of FSObject subclasses.  I guess you could monkeypatch
FSObject._updateFromFS.  You might want to do that anyway so you
don't have to run your production servers in debug mode.

I don't think there's any place for debugging or updating from the FS on a running production server, but maybe that's just me...
