** discussion is in the thread w/r fs, hierarchies, directories, 
permissions, etc.. **

Throwing 'stuff' into the game... around the time DCL and TTL 
started to displace RTL and DTL, and the late Dr. An Wang was 
still making site visits.....

ISTR  Signetics "Logic Designer's Casebook" (or whatever that 
huge white book was called) showing circuitry for "content 
addressable memory"

Now AFAIK humans use CAM all the time ...

Wonder how close we are / could be to a 'Content Addressable FS".

And no - this isn't a Google or indexing exercise - as with CAM, 
or the human brain, there is a fundamental difference in storage
