Google Gmail as a linux file system

How cool is this? GmailFS - Gmail Filesystem: "GmailFS provides a mountable Linux filesystem which uses your Gmail account as its storage medium. GmailFS is a Python application and uses the FUSE userland filesystem infrastructure to help provide the filesystem, and libgmail to communicate with Gmail."

All you need then is a Windows wrapper to mount it as a drive in Windows {2K/XP/etc} and you're all settled... Brilliance...

Wow, beautiful! 1GB of a drive accessible from anywhere.... I can see using that! Thanks for the heads up.

Hey. I tried installing that with Cygwin, but it doesn't work (FUSE want kernel sources :/ )

Do you any other wrappers?
