    What is the purpose of this directory? It appears to be yet another method of accessing the sdcard contents. For all intents and purposes, that's exactly what it is. But why add a THIRD method of accessing ONE directory. We now have /sdcard, /mnt/sdcard, and now /storage/sdcard0. I've only noticed this since flashing JB roms. It wasn't there on ICS. I understand redundancy, believe me, but sometimes It's just to much. Why would Google make this directory for what appears to be no reason? Ideas?

    I'm on the wanamlite JB for international s3 and this folder has put dupes in my music players. Everything shows up twice even though only 1 file exists. The rom seems buggy anyway so think im gonna restore. :(
