If you're interested in a uniform interface to distributed storage, I  
just talked about this idea in a presentation on my project  
GrassyKnoll at the NYC Python UG.  It's not a file API, but it's  
pretty universa.  The distributed parts are done over HTTP, so it  
presents the same interface for the outward facing web service as it  
does internally.

Might be the sort of thing you're looking for: http://code.google.com/p/grassyknoll/wiki/Presentations
