| By the way, I disagree on Hans with using a directory for the meta
data, I'd prefer to just have "..meta." as the name prefix of the
metadata things. Otherwise there's an extra directory level in there,
making ..meta/ different from other directories (making browsing it a
bit awkward since it doesn't have metadata of its own - like window
coordinates for displaying the directory).

You'd rather do "cat ..meta.pseudo" than "ls ..metas/"?
And we already have weird directories. /proc doesn't do things that
/tmp does. I also doubt proc will ever store that kind of metadata.

I don't like either "metas" or "..metas", but you'll have to look in the
archives for why. I am NOT starting that again.
