Common Internet File System?

After looking at the web page you cited I'm left with a feeling that CIFS is
just the same old wolf under a new sheepskin. File access across the net is
all very well and good if all you want to do is access files. I don't
think, however, that file access is all that interesting (to me, at least)
in a Squeak/Smalltalk context. I think Eric's ideas about image
coordination are more interesting. I also think that a netcentric object
"space" or, if you will, a "virtual image" is yet more interesting. (I
believe Self had something like this).
