Hi Vladimir!

Can I have more details about your security concerns? I may consider rewriting
parts of HFS code to improve it.

FWIW, in case you would be really interested on improving the HFS code, it 
be no problem to collect some funds in the PowerPC community to financially 
that task, e.g. through a Bountysource campaign.

We have done this in the past to support similar projects in GCC and LLVM.

What do you think?
