Oh, right. I guess I meant "which doesn't take a `preserve-modes'

Okay. Do you envision this as a Lisp-level API which uses lower-level
subroutines for each type (set-file-foo, similar to what we have today),
or as a C-level API which abstracts the different metadata types (in which
case we would remove file-foo/set-file-foo)?
