Novell filesystem support

I have been making Wine support Novell Bindery calls via the 
ncplib, so that I can get Pegasus mail to do mhs mail. But i've hit 
the brick wall, novell file operations on a window -> unix -> novell 
file system dose not work very well. 

So what needs to happen is make Wine know about other file 
system types other than dos / windows / unix. What I was thinking 
is, there must be some system that windows uses to register extra 
file systems and then use supplied functions for read/write/etc 

Dose Wine also support this system, or should it be made to do 
If this is in place where in the code should I look for references. If it 
is not supported, is it something that is should be supported in the 
future( i.e. a clean implementation ) or is an ugly little hack ok. 

If doing a hack, what structures should I add the extra information 
to, what structures should I not touch.

p.s. sorry if this has been brought up before, I found it hard to 
search the archives.
