That is indeed also what we do: we pass URLs around, and we have 2 modes: a file:// URL, but this only works when all the computers are properly mounted, and it they all use the same protocol to share the data, or we use afp:// or smb:// URLs so that all clients know how they should mount the other computer, and of course you also need to take care of the fact that the computer that creates the computer might see the disk differently than the computer that mounts it (local driver versus mounted driver where the mount might be on a sub folder) All a lot of 'fun' to work out, but once it works people are very happy with it.
