Not sure if I'll allowed to discuss the day job, but in my off time I've
been developing pyfilesystem (http://code.google.com/p/pyfilesystem/).

I recently added the ability to open filesystems with a url, and created a
bunch of command line applications which make use of that. This turned out
to be an insanely useful and versatile feature (IMHO).

Here are some examples of what you can do the command line apps:

Display a file on an ftp server:
    fscat ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/README

Serve an ftp site over http, effectively creating a ftp to http gateway:
    fsserve ftp://ftp.mozilla.org

Display the directory structure of a zip file:
    fstree zip://myzip.zip

Copy all the log files on an sftp server to a zip file on an ftp server:
    fscp sftp://will:password@example.org/logs/*.log zip:

Mount a ram drive in your home directory
    fsmount ~/ramdrive mem://

Its all in the repo trunk now. I plan to release version 0.4 in January once
I've written a shed load of docs...
