Comment (by warner):

 Looks pretty cool. From what I can tell, !PyFilesystem is entirely
 synchronous, so the tahoe backend would really be a wrapper around the
 {{{httplib}}}-based webapi interfaces like those used in {{{tahoe ls}}}
 and {{{tahoe get}}} (as opposed to something you might use inside the
 Tahoe client node process). When you instantiate a tahoe-backed FS object,
 the arguments would probably be a nodeurl and a rootcap.

 Neat: !PyFilesystem has code to expose the FS you create to FUSE and SFTP,
 among other frontends.
