Firstly: obviously, I think that work on /proc is a worthy and excellent
thing to be doing: everyone has been complaining about it since its introduction
(for good reason).
I'm not sure about such explicit typing: see my patch (the existing types are
only for convenience: you can trivially supply your own). I agree with the
"one file, one value" idea. I also went for dynamic directories for those who
don't want to continually register/deregister.
I suggest you read my patch 8)
