What about native Pick, where the database IS the filesystem?
Or Oracle, where it's configured to use raw partitions for data storage?

Good support for using the filesystem as an efficient mechanism for a persistent hierarchical collection of named values is what I would like. Where the names are the filenames and the values are the file contents. Similar to sysfs. I think a lot of people are using sqlite or dbm files for this because using filesystem operations takes too long.
