[Gluster-devel] libgfapi and any application

Specifically I've been looking at the innodb engine for MariaDB. While 
talking with Monty this weekend, he posited that I could write a wrapper 
library to go around the innodb library that would handle the 
connection, but would just override the glibc functions for posix 
filesystem commands. Does this sound feasible?

If it is, couldn't you essentially do an LD_PRELOAD wrapper around any 
application to do that? Sure, you would have to probably resort to 
environment variables to set the server and volume data, but in theory 
would it work?
