#FujiNet working on idea: block (sector) to network redirect.

Would allow for a program to mark a sector such that:

given a mounted disk. A sector or block # could be marked with a N: URL.

* On read of sector, it would read from the N: URL
* On write of sector, it would write the sector data to N: URL.

This would allow for existing games that write their hi-score data out to disk, to be sent to a server to be processed and filtered.

I will be using it on the #ColecoAdam Super Games to implement high score leaderboards for Buck Rogers, Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr., Sub-Roc, and Zaxxon.

Anyone wanna hack on it too?
