Mount the current object storage as a Linux filesystem via FUSE for an entire cluster.

The file system semantics of DSX are too confusing today, and more importantly, they do not work with most of the Python machine learning ecosystem. FUSE allows user programs implementing filesystems to be "mounted" as a Linux filesystem. A quick search for object storage FUSE systems yields a number of projects that can expose an object storage API as a filesystem, and interestingly there is a page for mounting SoftLayer Object Storage that may (or may not) still be useful: https://knowledgelayer.softlayer.com/learning/how-mount-object-storage.
