Indeed—I completely forgot about it.

Though, mentions patches for NFS (this
probably means that both NFS server would have to be patched; and not 
all NFS servers are running Linux kernel).  NFS4 (not really something
we'd consider "widely deployed") ought to support them as well.

Still, this probably rules xattrs out as something to depend on.
