The database already merges multiple volumes. It's just not
hotplug-aware and there's no query for the paths/filenames. But anyway,
I think this would be rather simple to implement (the latter, at least)
and not worth a GSoC project.

I think a real unified file view via the file browser (or even both) is
what we want. For writing capabilities and to not impose the database to
people.

Best regards.
