I suggest something that's even simpler at the C level:
an API that simply clones attributes from one file to
another.  The two files can be represented by file names
and file descriptors.  There's no need to build a runtime
representation in C or Lisp of the metadata.  Just copy
the metadata directly, from one file to the other.
