    Why? foo/metas is a file system object just like foo. It has owner,
    permission bits, so access to its meta-data should be provided, and
    uniform way to provide access to the file system object meta-data is to
    have these little magic files inside metas directory, which is a file
    system object just like metas. It has owner^@^@^@^@*** - Lisp stack
    overflow. RESET
