Are you doing just read()/access()/stat()  like operations? Then it should
be fine. If you are not using any new features (like quota/geo-replication
etc etc) then technically, you can modify (but surely not rename(2) and
link(2)) the data inside. But we haven't tested this for ages now, and we
don't recommend it for production use.
