Add some kind of property mechanism to java.io.File to get/set arbitrary metadata 
properties. The specific properties would of course be platform dependent, but 
this would allow developers to provide better support without having to use 
native code. (I believe the XFile package had something like this -- whatever 
happened to it?) 


EVALUATION Will be part of the new I/O package. Targeted for the Tiger release. david.biagini@Eng 2000-02-09 This functionality will be provided by the new filesystem interface (4313887). -- mr@eng 2000/2/18
