I meant "if the uri refers to a .ps file and I have a ps viewer which knows to access to this uri I want to directly open it in this viewer (instead of launching a browser which will propose me this very same viewer...)".

Att least for http, i would not look up the type based on the uri:s extension.

Every second website invent ther own extensions that in the end deliver something completly else :-/ The http headers have to be retreved. Guess the vfs librarys solves this to.

To Rodney, regarding vfs-library vs filesystemlevel vfs I can se advantages with vfs-librarys... Just don't want to give up the abstraction 'everything is a file (visably thru the fs)' that easy ;-)

It have worked quite well so far, and i gues the vfs library maintains it internaly att some level.

Later kernels suport userspace fs so thers no obvius need to wait infinitly for kernel fixes. Hopefully both worlds can coexist, and hopfully a filesystemlevel vfs implementation can us a good and mature vfs-library - to not duplicate effort (and memory usage).
