How dangerous is HFS+ in FreeBSD 5.3?

I have an external 60GB Firewire drive currently (stupidly) formatted 
in HFS+ (Mac OS X "Extended").  I'd like to get all the files off of 
the drive and onto my FreeBSD machine (which has firewire card 
installed, although I've yet to try and tackle mounting it). was the place to turn, but there 
are several very ominous warnings about using it for important data.  I 
was curious as to whether this was just one of those "cover your 
behind" disclaimers or a "really, don't use this for anything 
important" disclaimers.
