It has been discussed and I have seen no indication that namedattr/
resource forks will ever be implemented. The same appears to be
true of Linux. I recall that there were significant issues related to userspace
things like archivers, etc. There would also be significant changes needed
to the VOP/VFS, since resource forks (or whatever you call them) are really
files in a different namespace.
