in thread FIFO directory?

you said ...
The reason that a directory like fifo would be useful is to allow access to a program through a file system like interface. This would allow some funky stuff to occur. So you could map a DB directly to some filesystem layout so that reads and writes would access the DB ...
You hit the nail on the head with that one, that's exactly what I am aiming at only you phrased in much more elequently than I. I am going to keep working on this, I will keep updated.
Maybe at some point or another we will have a setup of Tie:: modules to provide access to a user maped filesystem :)
