%clay is version-controlled, referentially-transparent, and global. While this filesystem is stored in
%clay, it is mirrored to Unix for convenience. Unix tells
%clay whenever a file changes in the Unix copy of the filesystem so that the change may be applied.
%clay tells unix whenever an app or vane changes the filesystem so that the change can be effected in Unix. Apps and vanes may use
%clay to write to the filesystem, query it, and subscribe to changes in it. Ford and gall use
%clay to serve up apps and web pages.
%clay includes three components. First is the filesystem/version control algorithms, which are mostly defined in
++zu in zuse. Second is the write, query, and subscription logic. Finally, there is the logic for communicating requests to, and receiving requests from, foreign ships.
