I'd note that the mkisofs man page listed about a dozen different
formats used in various contexts to store Mac resource forks and
finder metadata in various contexts. I'd imagine the advent of MacOSX
(with UFS support) has narrowed the field of what options are common
somewhat, but it's an area where a lot of ad-hoc solutions made it
out to the real world. On the other hand, the mkisofs source might be
a useful source of code fragments for dealing with related issues.
