If they haven't got the same properties, then they aren't the same file.

This is a basic identity confusion. Either the properties are associated
with the object (the file), or the processes are associated with the
object's context (the name in the file system). The question, then, is
merely where to bind the attributes.

In practice, I haven't come up with an example where binding attributes to
names rather than objects is helpful. I'ld be interested in an example.

Oh. The situation where one project includes the state of another is a
way-out case where all manner of weird and incomprehensible attribute
hacking might be relevant, but an example of a simple case would be a more
useful starting point.
