    Subjectnamed streams, extended attributes, and posix
    Now that 2.4 is out, it will probably be a few .x releases until 2.5
    begins.

    A discussion on Named Streams and Extended Attributes was put off until
    2.5 earlier in the 2.4 development cycle. For compatibility with
    existing, widely-deployed filesystems (e.g., NFS, XFS, BeFS, HFS, etc.),
    Linux needs a standard way to expose and interact with these filesystem
    features. A draft of a paper proposing a methd for accomplishing this on
    Posix systems is available at:

    Please read and comment! :)
