Hopefully Max OS X will avoid Mac specific code being required.

I'd also "stick my head in the sand" for NTFS file streams. Microsoft
support is thin.

For those that don't know NTFS supports an unlimited (?) number of
named data streams on each file. Try this on NT:

echo the data >a.a
echo data in a stream >a.a:stuff

more < a.a
more < a.a:stuff
