It's a stupid idea. Moving a simple block based filesystem means it's
more complicated, less efficient because of the additional context
switches and harder to use because you need additional userspace
packages and need to setup fuse.
We made writing block based filesystems trivial in the kernel to grow
more support for filesystems like this one.
