    Well, yes and no. I just played around with Rez/DeRez and they do
not support extended attributes, so something new will need to be

    It would seem useful and logical, but I haven't heard anything that
would indicate the developers plan or have interest in actually do ing
such a thing in a future release. Which is quite unfortunate for the users.
