Can all be accomplished with a single $FS_INTERFACE (or a small set of
$FS_INTERFACEs). I'll take maintaining a single piece of code over
maintaining many, and leaving the ugly corpses of orphaned $FILE_MANAGER
stubs lying around the landscape.

Directly supporting the file manager would lead to some, measurable better
performance, but the cost of doing so is huge in comparison.
