Hello Joerg,
My knowledge is superficial but your explanation reminds of Section
6.1.1, page 100, in the Ph.D. thesis of Pieter Muller.

"In Native Oberon, there was a need to allow many kinds of file
system for interoperability with other operating systems installed on the
same machine, to access several kinds of removable media with their own
file system formats, and to access file systems located on remote servers.
The installable file system framework developed for Native Oberon ..."

Put an updated ETH Oberon on a Skulski machine?
