Thanks does that mean that I can reshape the whole "everything is a file" under unix?

I don't want /etc /var /usr (and any other premade structure you find in every linux distro...) but manage it differently via our db.

You confirm that doable?
Doable? Yes, everything is open source.

Sensible? Not really. I'm not sure you've considered the scale of
what you're asking. For example, /etc/passwd and /etc/hosts are deeply
tied into large amounts of software.

You can make *your* software use whatever configuration database you
want, but you'll have a lot of work to do if you want to move the user
database or DNS resolver information out of /etc.
