I backup Davids POV. xattrs should go into new node type(s) rather than
into the reiser style "everything is a directory" approach. It's an ugly
hack. I prefer designed functionality over the patchwork approach. I
know that it will take more time, but it will fit better and will be
easier to maintain.
