No need to be shy or awkward here, this is probably the friendliest
community I've ever been a part of.

Agreed. File systems are including more and more metadata themselves
as well, so I think it's important to consider how people use file
systems today, as opposed to 20 years ago. Also, because REBOL is all
about semantic information exchange, you can consider files to be
a type of persistent "message"; the idea being that messages are
processed and dispatched based on header information, and you could do
the same thing with files.
