Re: Swift supported file system
That functionality is left up to a client. For example, you could use FUSE to spoof swift as a filesystem or you could use a client like Cyberduck or even write your own. Last week someone on this mailing list talked about adding webDAV support to swift.
All of these "work" in that they present swift to the user as a filesystem. However, swift doesn't follow POSIX semantics and therefore any attempt to force swift into such a model will have drawbacks (mostly with regards to performance).
