A big YES to FUSE, and a common api for unix-like OSs.

I use the Fuse based ntfs-3g to access my Windows partition. It is a little 
bit slower than nfs, but acceptable. Maybe ClamFS is not optimized.

Opening a dialog couldn't hurt. SuSE has a dazuko-kmp-${flavour} .rpm, but 
fedora/livna doesn't. I suspect it would be easier to get distros to include 
your software if it is not a kernel module.
