Should winedevice.exe in the end be able to load file system drivers as well?

I think the idea of loading filesystem drivers is insane at best,
unless you plan to add a whole vfs layer, or modify the captive driver
(NTFS binary driver loader for the linux kernel) to work on wine. And
even that probably depends on the vfs layer. Feel free to correct me
if I'm wrong.
