Not to pick too many nits on this one, but creator codes aren't
guaranteed to be there on Mac OS X - and stuff within application
bundles (e.g. appName.app/Contents/MacOS/appName) may be executable in
the +x UNIX sense.

Arguably, Mac OS X falls under the "UNIX" category, but certain Mac OS
9 things don't hold all the time in OS X.

The ugly side issue that still makes me cringe is thinking about
versioning files with resource forks and/or Finder catalog info in
svn. At the moment I'm preferring to stick my head in the sand on that
one and look at some other features again.
