REMOTE FILESYSTEM filesystem is represented as a tree of nodes of various types.
       Nodes are identified by a 8 character node handles (eg. 7Fdi3ZjC).
       Structure of the	filesystem is not encrypted.

       Megatools maps node tree	structure to a traditional filesystem paths
       (eg. /Root/SomeFile.DAT).

       NOTE: By	the nature of storage, several files in	the directory
       can have	the same name. To allow	access to such files, the names	of
       conflicting files are extended by appending dot and their node handle
       like this:


       You need	to be aware of several special folders:

	   Writable directory representing the root of the filesystem.

	   Trash directory where web client moves deleted files. This
	   directory is	not used by megatools when removing files.

	   Not sure.

	   Directory containing	subdirectories representing your contacts
	   list. If you	want to	add contacts to	the list, simply create
	   subdirectory	named after the	contact	you want to add.

	   Directories representing individual contacts	in your	contacts list.
	   These directories contain folders that others shared	with you. All
	   shared files	are read-only, at the moment.
