By default it's the other way round. If you don't specify a fstype in the
URL passed to PFile it first looks in the "normal" file system (via stdio)
and if that fails it looks through the virtual stuff (PakFiles etc).

Later we want to make that configurable (switch lookup order / constrain to
normal / constrain to virtual / ...)

Planned for later. Shouldn't be difficult to add however.
