Zotero file system design pattern name

Hi there =)

I really like the design pattern that Zotero uses to store documents.

That is, one main directory housing all documents. Then presenting a user with an interface that allows that a document to be filed under an arbitrary number of directories. So the Zotero interface presents a user with symlinks / shortcuts / pointers to the documents in the main directory.

I would like to investigate how best to replicate this design pattern. So looking for literature, tools or other open source examples of this.

First of all though, curious if this particular file system design pattern has a name?
