As promised a while ago, we have made some experimental builds, which  
enable this in widgets, to play around with. There is some documentation  
at http://dev.opera.com/libraries/fileio/ with some code examples at  
http://dev.opera.com/libraries/fileio/FileIO-examples.zip

The builds that run this are available in a bunch of different flavours.

Windows: http://snapshot.opera.com/windows/o950s_io_9974.exe
Mac OS X: http://snapshot.opera.com/mac/o950s_io_4810.dmg (may require at  
least OS X.3)
Linux: Assorted intel and x86 64bit packages are linked from  
http://snapshot.opera.com/unix/snapshot_io-1952/

These are experimental builds. No Warranty for any purpose implied. Handle  
with care.

Anyway, hopefully this allows people to have a play with the ideas, and  
see where the interesting stuff leads.

cheers

Chaals
