CMFFSContent - Put CMF content onto the file system

If you are looking for a way to manage content on the file system in  
order to take advantage of better editors, source control systems and  
other utilities you might be interested in CMFFSContent.

CMFFSContent represents a content-ish equivalent to the CMF Skins  
mechanism. You can register directories that provide filesystem  
content and file extensions that should be recognized as one of the  
content types available (FSFile, FSImage, FSDocument) from your code.  
You can also derive your own FS-based content types and plug them  
into the machinery.

A specific use case would be a "brochure" site that does not offer  
membership or member-contributed content, but a seldom-changing set  
of pages that need to be tightly controlled. Case in point: My  
company page at http://www.zetwork.com, which serves CMFFSContent  
only. Another suitable candidate would be a site that does have  
members and member-contributed content, but a specific area for  
centrally-maintained information, such as a canonical set of  
documentation pages.
