 * List of multiple file system nodes. E.g. the contents of a given directory.
 * This is subclass instead of just a typedef so that we can use forward
 * declarations of it in other places.
00037 class FSList : public Common::Array<FilesystemNode> {};

 * FilesystemNode provides an abstraction for file pathes, allowing for portable
 * file system browsing. To this ends, multiple or single roots have to be supported
 * (compare Unix with a single root, Windows with multiple roots C:, D:, ...).
 * To this end, we abstract away from paths; implementations can be based on
 * paths (and it's left to them whether / or \ or : is the path separator :-);
 * but it is also possible to use inodes or vrefs (MacOS 9) or anything else.
 * NOTE: Backends still have to provide a way to extract a path from a FSIntern
 * You may ask now: "isn't this cheating? Why do we go through all this when we use
 * a path in the end anyway?!?".
 * Well, for once as long as we don't provide our own file open/read/write API, we
 * still have to use fopen(). Since all our targets already support fopen(), it should
 * be possible to get a fopen() compatible string for any file system node.
 * Secondly, with this abstraction layer, we still avoid a lot of complications based on
 * differences in FS roots, different path separators, or even systems with no real
 * paths (MacOS 9 doesn't even have the notion of a "current directory").
 * And if we ever want to support devices with no FS in the classical sense (Palm...),
 * we can build upon this.

       * Create a new FilesystemNode referring to the specified path. This is
       * the counterpart to the path() method.
       * If path is empty or equals ".", then a node representing the "current
       * directory" will be created. If that is not possible (since e.g. the

       * actually be OK... but we could still add an isFile method. Or even replace
       * isValid and isDirectory by a getType() method that can return values like
       * kDirNodeType, kFileNodeType, kInvalidNodeType.

       * be anything that fulfilly the above criterions.
