I know it is possible to use "map archive" to keep track of archive
bits, but this is not very useful if you have real UNIX users. I.e. I
can't have samba arbitrarily playing with the execute bits.
Does anyone know of any attempted implementation of archive bits through
extended attributes? This would probably need a VFS layer, to get and
set them appropriately.
If no one has looked into this is there a better/different way of
tracking archive bits?
