RClone : Mount Google Drive on any File System

Background Would it be nice to directly manipulate Google Drive as part of the OS File System ? Would it be nice to automate backups directly in the cloud ? Would it be nice to stop buying expensive external storage ? The idea is not to send a "all to cloud" message. But sometimes, this very handy to have quickly have access to some centralized storage. Well, I think so. But How ? Cloud Storage is object storage (S3 like), so each files are actually identified by a unique URL and a set of credentials granting or not certain rights. There is a way of course !
