[erlang-questions] Use several file server processes

I want to start separate erlang shell processes (via shell:start/2) on my
erlang node. I want each of these shells to have their own CWD, that could
be read/written by file:get_cwd/0, file:set_cwd/1.

I hoped to find something like that:
http://erlang.org/doc/apps/stdlib/io_protocol.html but for file operations.

I looked up in stdlib file.erl and discovered that it makes gen_server:call
to process registered under file_server_2, which is hardcoded in source.

There is not way to achieve what I want?
