*was* being the key word :-)

Nowadays, the FS is much more like a random access filesystem, than an
editor. (which is totally fine by me since it matches the semantics that I'm
looking for; I think it also works better for Jim)

The glue would supply the appropriate editors and just call into the FS. Not
a big problem, I'd think.
