My VMS memories are somewhat weak (I helped this happen through
liberal ingestion of alcohol after I did my 2 year sentence in VMS
hacking - FABs and RABs and XABS, oh my! I still sometimes wake up
sweating), but I'd think that a UNIX equivalent would want 3 different
levels of hierarchy: system, user, process (in that order). I think
that the user variables would be especially interesting in the kinds
of things you could do with them.

Then you'd want to teach namei() about them for those, nudge nudge,
variant symlinks! :-)
