The filesystem keeps track of a single filesource that it uses for all of the files it knows about. We would like to extend this so that there is a root filesource but other filesources can be plugged in at points in the hierarchy. For example, let's say that there is the BespinServer filesource configured at the root of the filesystem. It should be possible to do something like (where fs is the filesystem object): fs.mount("local", new LocalFileSource("/home/myuser/projects")); (Note that this bug does not include creating a local filesource and this can easily be tested with dummy file sources from fixture.js). The filesystem will adjust paths as needed before passing them into the filesource. So, /local/foo.txt would come through as just "foo.txt" to the filesource.
Moving this from 0.7.3 because of new infrastructure that needs to be built.

ACETRANSITION The Skywriter project has merged with Ajax.org's Ace project (the full server part of which is their Cloud9 IDE project). Background on the change is here: http://mozillalabs.com/skywriter/2011/01/18/mozilla-skywriter-has-been-merged-into-ace/ The bugs in the Skywriter product are not necessarily relevant for Ace and quite a bit of code has changed. For that reason, I'm closing all of these bugs. Problems that you have with Ace should be filed in the Ace issue tracker at GitHub: https://github.com/ajaxorg/ace/issues
