Android is for a consumer appliance; a cell phone or tablet.  
For the external SD card, Android  recognizes only a FAT filesystem; 
whereas EXT2 or EXT4 is preferable for A2. If that constraint is ever 
relaxed, a firstclass A2 app might be more worthwhile.

I don't understand.  Android on a PC?

I can't answer about olr.  The Oberon subsystem in LinuxA2 certainly has 
access to the host filesystem. 
System.Directory  /etc/udev/* ~ gives

ET.OpenAscii /etc/udev/udev.conf gives
# see udev.conf(5) for details
# udevd is started in the initramfs, so when this file is modified the
# initramfs should be rebuilt.
  ... .
So yes, you can "edit" any file.  Subject to permissions of course. 
An ordinary user can read /etc/udev/udev.conf with ET.OpenAscii; not change it.

Why not LinuxA2 on a desktop or laptop?  Why Android?
