[Oberon] filesystem with directories ?

Sorry, if this sounds harsh, but the below is nonsense. I bet that f.i. 
our IBM 3270 (I work for Bank Austria Creditanstalt AG as a software 
developer on IBM HOST)  has more files than every PC will ever have - 
probably by more than a hundred times. Yet, there are NO directories 
there. Nada. And it works perfectly well, in Batch-mode, in CICS 
interactive mode and in ISPF. There is nothing that a hierarchical fs 
can do, that large filenames cannot do also.
