ResierFS does this (though you can turn it off). One of it's claims is that
it happily supports 100,000's of small files in a directory, all b-tree
indexed and stored in sub-block amounts. They say ResierFS 4 will be
exposing a transaction API in userspace apparently to deal with all these
issues of atomicity and files. I'm still not sure whether they think they're
a filesystem or a database. (sound like anything else recently... longhorn)
