- Store the file on a file system that doesn't natively support
multiple forks -- for example, a UFS disk or partition, or a disk image
of that format, or a network share -- which will cause OS X to create a
second file whose name begins with ._ to store the resource fork. Then
check in both the file and its ._ partner. It has recently been
discussed how this has broken as of Mac OS X 10.4 so this is probably
not the best idea.

- Put the file on a disk image (of any format), or in a StuffIt
archive, or in a Zip archive, and check in the archive or image.
