Let's say you have an app on the phone that wants a filename. Let's further pre-suppose that it's an Android app, although there's no particular reason that matters (I think.)
What's the prefix for various filesystems? For instance, in the File Browser linked computers (if you have 10.1 show up, the sd card and phone itself show up, and if you have DropBox or Box logged in, they show up.
I've figured out that you can reference a file on the SD card from an Android app. It shows up as /sdcard2/whatever. The phone's filesystem at /misc/Android shows up as /sdcard.
But what if I want a file on my DropBox or Box account? Can that be referenced directly? How about one on my linked PC filesystem?
I haven't been able to figure that out yet.
Does anyone know the generic syntax to reference a file by name on BB10?

From a program that wants to open a file, whether as a developer or as a user.
(e.g. KeePass; an android port -- which would be really nice to be able to reference, for example, its database from the Dropbox integrated folder, or the Box one, etc.)
Do those other areas show up as what amount to "mount points"?
