I apologize, I should have thought before tossing this comment off.  I did not 
mean to advocate use of Mac OS in general, just point out that it could be a 
testbed for evaluating a feature that was being implemented or considered for 
implementation on a free platform.  Or not even using it, but just reading what 
others say about it positive or negative.

Regarding trapping, Time Machine uses standard unix hard links, and the default 
FS format for Mac OS is HFS+, the specs for which are published here 
(http://developer.apple.com/mac/library/technotes/tn/tn1150.html); a GNU/linux 
driver has been developed.
