I would like to "wrap" a stream wrapper, and this would include calling the original wrapper's methods from my wrapper class. For instance, I would like to implement versioning over the file:// protocol but I cannot access the filesystem while my file:// wrapper is registered. It would be nice to be able to use the classes of built-in wrappers.

Also, I can't find the php function to change the default wrapper so I can have relative paths handled by my wrapper. A lot of app. code not under my control use relative paths. I could register my own file:// wrapper but then again...

My current workaround is to call stream_wrapper_restore() inside my wrapper's functions, do my thing with the filesystem, then call stream_wrapper_register() again, but I think this sucks. I hope php is doing no more than changing some pointers internally when I call these functions, otherwise, the performance of my wrapper is gone.

... Another feature that could get me out of this chicken and egg problem would be to be able to alias a built-in wrapper protocol in its current configuration (i.e. with it's current handler class). I would happily alias "file:" to "filesystem:" and then register my own wrapper class to the "file:" protocol and use the "filesystem:" protocol internally.

I also think getcwd() and chdir() should be open for stream-wrapping for  the relative paths to work with a wrapper for the default "file" scheme.

Only way around this seems to be to inside your wrapper-function then to call stream_wrapper_restore(), perform the work on your regular filesystem and before the end re-register your stream-wrapper. While it's sort of a "hack" this way we successfully created a wrapper that overlays certain directories/files but passes through all others to the real file-layer.
