Patterned after the PHP filesystem functions, simple functions such as file read/write and directory create are supported. The code has not yet made it into the nightly build, but they expect it will get in soon.

Exactly Ben. This is for mozilla application programmers only. As more or less an organized convenience to the current existing methodologies of doing file I/O from application script.
I just read the project web page posted by Alphanumerica just now. I see now where the fear of God has stemmed from.
"This interface allows even casual programmers full access to local file handling routines."
This actually scared me as well after reading it. When you are programming any client application, the programmer *always* has full access to everything.
This statement is misleading in the sense that it made it appear that we all of a sudden opened up file I/O in Mozilla. The wording will be changed today.
