Provide emulators access to the HDD

description

The WBFS is currently centred only on wii games. One nice adittion would be to enable emulators to use the storage capacity of the HDD or SD card.
 
I propose that the metadata section of the filesystem provide witch system it provides a game to.
 
So, for example, I could have a layout like so:
-- wdfs+ table
-- game
-- -- metatada
-- -- -- gamename: foo
-- -- -- gametype: wii
-- -- attachments
-- -- -- cover: jpg bynary data
-- -- game binary
-- game
-- -- metadata
-- -- -- gamename: bar
-- -- -- gametype: snes
-- -- attachments
-- -- -- cover: jpg binary data
-- -- -- savegame: jpg binary data
-- game bynary
 
This kind of layout could beneffit not only console emulators but another kind off apps too, like scummvm for example.
