That's great, and saved me some work. Oh, and u can skip "de Meux" ;)

I think it's fine if it's only an extension. I agree with Alexander
about presenting raw attributes.
As you've read on this extension was more a
"more-useful-than-hello-world-but-still-an-hello-world-extension" than a
very serious stuff.
I think extended attributes usage in Nautilus & the GNOME desktop should
be discussed. As almost all filesystems support them, it would be nice
to use them at least to replace the nautilus-metafiles (and fall back
the normal way if they're not supported).

It was my plan, but I've found this paper :

I think I'll just have to translate it, it would be much more accurate
than I could ever do. Still a big job given my 'wonderful' english...
