[Twisted-Python] Isolating ISFTPServer in Conch's SFTP

I'm looking to create a filesystem backend for twisted that could be
used by any filelike twisted application (sftp, webdav etc).
I've got a proof of concept filesystem interface working - IFileSystem
.. not the best of names ;), which I'm about to try and sftp into.
ISFTPServer is a nice clean interface which it'd be easy to write an
adapter for from my IFileSystem - but its implementation is bolted into
FileTransferServer along with a bunch of protocol stuff ..
I had been vaguely planning to break ISFTPServer's implementation out of
FileTransferServer and move it into a realm avatar when I got this far
so different users could have different filesystems but now that I get
to looking at it - FileTransferServer is brought into existance when a
sftp sybsystem is requested by the sftp client, which happens after
It's beginning to look like most of conch/ssh/session.py would need to
move into an avatar - so the avatar for a given user could be asked for
a shell, or a sftp subsystem and they would get the right shell/ sftp
onto a filesystem for that user ..
I was hoping that Paul, or someone else may have some thoughts in this
area to guide me ..
