When one mounts an hfs filesystem under 2.4, there are a bunch of
pseudo-directories with names beginning with a "." that give you access
to the finder info and the resource forks of all the files.
You can access the resource via <file>/rsrc. I have a patch to export
some other data as extended attributes.
Now, is the loss under 2.6 of the HFS ".finderinfo" and ".resource"
pseudo-directories a bug, or a feature?
A feature, the old code was broken and it's simply not sanely possible
to export the data like this.
