Subject Re: [VFS] next release

With all the changes you've made a release of VFS is warranted.

I'm not sure why a renae would be required instead of just calling it VFS3. To be honest,
I've never much liked the VFS API, expecially the ConfigurationBuilder stuff. Losing the API
in favor of the Java API seems like a good way to correct that. Since Java 7 calls the new
API FileSystem, FileSystems, etc., I would think VFS would be the appropriate name.  FWIW,
I would imagine that other than converting to whatever Java 7 requires all the providers would
be left largely intact.
