Is it really a good idea to create new name in the filesystem tree ? I mean, a 
file must have only one path, create new nodes with binding is confusing.
I don't understand the need of binding the "foo.tar.bz" in a directory "foo".
Isn't it just possible to the application who need the tree view of foo.tar.bz 
to access it as a directory ?
