info request: mac files, wrappers, opaque collections, etc?

I'm a MacOS X developer. I'm wondering where things currently sit
regarding a way of preserving the resource and finder info forks of Mac
files in subversion. I know this has been discussed before, most
poignantly it seems, in issue #707 regarding opaque collections. (
http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=707). I know that
cvswrapper-like (client-side scripts) solutions have been discussed as
well. I agree with those that say that client maintained scripts are a
bad idea.
Two questions...
1) 707's priority is very low, but some subscribers have voiced an
interest in working on it anyway. Has any progress been made towards
opaque collections?
2) If I HAVE TO HAVE this functionality, what should I do?
   a) Deal with the problem manually until svn can do this correctly via
feature XXX (please tell me what XXX is!)
   b) Go back to CVS and use cvswrappers
   c) Write a wrapper around the 'svn' tool to do my own
encoding/decoding of complex mac files
   d) Use some other svn HACK that someone's already implemented (if
there are such things, I'd LOVE to hear about them....please!)
   and, of course, the ideal option...
   e) You dummy, we've already implemented this solution in svn...it's
called YYY.
TIA for any information.
