GmailFS - make your Gmail a mountable filesystem

I am not sure what Google will say to this, but I like it!

GmailFS provides a mountable Linux filesystem which uses your Gmail account as its storage medium.

GmailFS supports most file operations such as read, write, open, close, stat, symlink, link, unlink, truncate and rename. This means that you can use all your favourite unix command line tools to operate on files stored on Gmail (e.g. cp, ls, mv, rm, ln, grep etc. etc.).

Requires Python 2.3 installed.

The next step is for someone to make a utility to make it a windows drive

I've tested GmailFS yesterday, and it works fine. Next step was to mount it in a Samba network, so Windows workstations could access it as well

But yes, making a little Windows tool that would map Gmail accounts as drives would be the next step. Then Google will most certainly permanently include image verification or something alike to disable scraping processes.
