Using MySQL as a filesystem

Ok.... WHY the hell would you want to use MySQL as FS.
Clearly the author is a fool. As stated above the proof of concept is ok... but other than that there is 0 pratical value.

GFS, lustre, ext3, xfs etc all would do a much better job...

Anyone reading this and thinking hey I could use this for my site. Stop. Don't pass go and do not collect your next pay check.
