anyone know if there’s been any work by anyone to enable virtiofs on lima?

It’s more of a Qemu limitation than Lima.
However, there is an ongoing discussion on utilising macOS native virtualisation framework as an alternative to Qemu.
Even if that happens, Qemu would still be the recommended default due to it being FOSS.

I think it is possible to make it work in Linux, but I am not sure if there is a working prototype for Mac yet ? So it is a Docker-only feature for now I think
Red Hat was working on it (as in: virtiofsd darwin) for Podman Desktop, but (as usual?) they were going to rewrite everything in Rust first
