Err, that's not quite what I think he means.

I think his question is more like this:
"If the FS doesn't know about modules in a formal schema way, then how
can the FS deliver answers to arbitrary queries about modules, their
usages, and any other odd fact you'd want to find out about modules?"

i.e. If the FS actually had a SQL store and modules were stored the way
you suggested then you couldn't possibly write a SQL query (or stored
procedure) that reasoned about modules in any decently easy way, form,
or fashion.
