There are a number of existing userland filesystems, try:
"LUFS is a hybrid userspace filesystem framework supporting an indefinite number
of filesystems (localfs, sshfs, ftpfs, cardfs and cefs implemented so far)
transparently for any application."
"POrtable Dodgy Filesystems in Userland (hacK) version 2. Once upon a time,
there was project called podfuk. It used nfs, and nfs sucks. On one sunny night,
its author had nothing better to do, and he started creating fake cache manager

"Welcome to the hierachical storage filesystem. This project aims to create a
simple way of managing a vast amount of data over multiple CD-R media. This is
done by creating a virtual filesystem simulating all files on the CDs as if they
were online on the harddisk. When a file is accessed, a dialog box asks for the
correct CD. So any program can be used to acces the data without needing to know
the files are on CD. "
"VCFS is the Virtual CVS FileSystem. VCFS provides a user-space NFS server that
allows local or remote CVS repositories to be mounted as a filesystem. It works
with existing CVS servers, including those used by SourceForge."
