See 9pfile(1). lib9p has a feature to do most of the work of
managing trees, especially walking and cloning. It's convenient
in many circumstances, and works very well for things like
ramfs, but is not very useful when you provide a synthetic
filesystem that represents program state, or the like. In that
case, you'd have to manage two instances of the date if you were
to use 9pfile.

I've been meaning to experiment with some methods of doing
similar on top of libixp, as well as providing some more
convenience functions for common, complex things, but haven't
gotten to it yet. (There are a few of them used in wmii already,
just not migrated to libixp).
