    Just a question -- will there be a performance
    issue with mounting and unmounting lots of very
    little filesystems (every file with EAs/streams?
    And, how transparent will it be? Will the user
    have to "mount muckety-muck myfile" to use its
    streams?

    That would make things "intereting." Like
    netatalk+hfs...
