sshfs and other fuse-based file systems have page-based accesses.  If 
two processes attempt to write different parts of the same page, it 
might not be clear who should win.

I don't know the exact details of the ssshfs/fusefs consistency 
semantics, but apparently they are not adequate for parallel access.
