Relooking at your post, I'm guessing your wanting some magic
way of getting a fill pull down to an app and automatic
push back... obviously not without a great deal of risk.
I think you're still looking at some kind of webdav protocol,
but since the external app might not speak that, it's easiest
to just mount the directory via some kind of network file
share... not quite integrated... if it's an internal only
site, you could assume you have a mount at a specific file
location at least get things to link.... but that's
separate from automatic filesytem/web integration.
(getting is obviously easier than putting/pushing)
