I can check with Matt if you need, but the
contents of the header are in RFC 1740:

  <http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc1740.txt>

I think they just extracted the header from the RFC.

I'll be glad to chase down licenses, etc. (or
re-extract the header from the RFC) if you need
as well as performing impedance matching with the
author as needed.

I have 20 years of Mac OS programming experience
but not a lot of experience with the svn code
base -- that is likely to chance once I can use
svn with my production code. ;-)

I'll also be glad to participate in the Real Solution.

However, this looks like a pretty safe
intermediate solution which is forward compatible
-- the next rev just needs to recognize the
property and repackage the data and delete the
property on check-in.

Cheers,

-Steve
