Do you mean adding your own virtual file system?
Currently no, but it's a great new feature request.

Yes, that's what I meant. I believe Netbeans and perhaps JBuilder have mechanisms for supporting this; not as sure about Eclipse.
We use a VFS now with jEdit... it allows us to access files stored behind a proprietary systems.
What do you mean? If you want to write a new implementation of
VirtualFileSystem, it's completely valid and should be supported. If you
have any problems with doing this, please report.
Yes, see the javadoc for this API. Did you find that anything was missing

Forgive my ignorance, but I'm having trouble figuring out where one registers a new VirtualFileSystem with IDEA. I see how I can use the VirtualFileManager to enumerate existing VirtualFileSystem instances, and I see how I can then interact with them... but I don't understand what I need to do to tell IDEA about a new one provided by a plugin. Can you point me in the right direction?
Thanks in advance,
