intercept file access to git-annex repos

still about photos and git-annex: When my wife edits photos prior to uploading 
them, it would be fine if she wouldn't need to know about git-annex. Hacking 
git-annex support in every photo application is no option.

But is there any linux kernel or LD_PRELOAD magic that could intercept access 
to a git-annex repo and make it look "normal"? (I just realize that we already 
talked about a fuse filesystem for git-annex.)

The interceptor should show the real files instead of symlinks and should do an 
edit-add roundtrip for any write access.
