    OK, that does make it more sensible. I do note, however, that ext2/ext3
    do not seem to export their attributes (chattr/lsattr) in this way; I do
    also note that the xattr code wherever it has been implemented is just
    painfully complex.

    I'll see if I can weed it down to some kind of sane size.
