I'm very interested in having xattrs included in deb packages. Which
xattrs in particular are you interested in? Part of the problem is that
fake-root creates the directory structure, but wouldn't be able to copy
the security xattrs. Reading security xattrs is permitted, but writing
security xattrs requires privilege.
