Perhaps a better way to think about this is that instead of talking
about directories and files, we just talk about objects.
Then you have a collection of interrelated objects, i.e., a database.
Operating systems that work on databases (no filesystem) have been done,
and are a nice idea... but are far, far away from Unix.
Actually, databases are the wrong solution because they are relational,
and what is needed is a semi-structured query language that is upwardly
compatible with Unix hierarchical semantics, ala
