I haven't had time to explore those, and I really have been meaning to.
The one I've read a bit about are those that use the LUFS
(http://lufs.sourceforge.net/) code: The LUFS pages mention LoCaseFS and
SshFS as practical -- I think.
One I used at work for a while is SFS (http://www.fs.net/sfswww/).
Performance was a bit sluggish, but it worked.
Thanks for mentioning those other userspace VFS schemes. Will
investigate, when I have time. Some look a bit more like one-off
experimental efforts than others. SFS has the advantage of being pretty
robust and actively maintained.
