Thanks for the kudos.  If you wish to pursue this, you would need to
submit an RFC and also request committer access from the PSC.  The change
is far too broad to handle as a patch.

I would agree that altering the "L" api to working with a VSILFILE handle
would be prudent.

I won't bother trying to explain the origins of the current approach.
