But a portable version control system may also not be in the position
to version your meta data sanely between operating systems: Windows
ACLs are hardly portable to Linux (just as an example). So, your vcs
may need to leave out versioning of OS specific functionality (such as
resource forks on OS X)....

I hope you understand.
