I also tested 4.2.0rc2 with your aapl patches. The time it takes in a  
Terminal to do "ls -l" on the mounted volume doesn't change, but the time it  
takes to list the directory contents in the Finder goes down from about 15  
seconds to around 7 seconds. This is really great! Christmas has come early  
this year :)
