Filesystem for unmanaged disk (FAT32/anything)

Question

So, I have been trying to find somebody who's implemented a filesystem for the unmanaged drives. I know what you must be thinking, just use the managed drive then, I'm legit doing what a managed drive does. However, for a few projects, I've wanted or needed an unmanaged filesystem. One example, is an expanded raid with minimal overhead. The simplest sort of raid, just glue all the drives together in one long linear addressable space. That parts easy, just check what section the pointer is on, and forward the operations to the proper disk. The issue is, they require that they be unmanaged, otherwise the "glue" doesn't work. 

Has anybody seen, or maybe is working on, an implementation of a filesystem for unmanaged drives. I searched here and elsewhere, but couldn't find anything. I'm also terrible at understanding filesystems myself, otherwise I would try and implement this.

Thanks for any information you can provide me.
