A filesystem where each directory can have only one subdirectory.

@alexbuzzbee better, *exactly* one subdirectory, like you have to have one. You get an infite chain of subdirectories.

@bugaevc @alexbuzzbee So, basically, a circular linked list with symbolic links?


@codesections @alexbuzzbee I was thinking allowing hardlinks to directories & doing a "real" circular linked list 🙃

@bugaevc @codesections @alexbuzzbee I’m pretty sure there are good reasons for the filesystem to be a DAG. 😁
