True. I had forgotten about your original post from June [1]. It
doesn't work anymore as of 10.4, because 10.4 tries to handle the
situation, and Subversion doesn't realize that a file it thought it
was handling (the ._ file) has been handled instead by the OS. So
you're right.

Also true: Rez format is only for resources, not for extended
attributes. So a solution for storing extended attributes also does
not exist.
