You must be talking OSX since you are talking Spotlight.

I've not read a lot about the new HFS+ system, but I thought that  
with OSX at least, all that resource fork stuff was finally gone.  If  
you keep the ._ files, you should have everything.

That CarbonCopyCloner utility, I thought was just a fancy front end  
for rsync;

I've not tested, and I could be totally wrong, but I thought that  
finally we could just copy the darn files.  I just about  test  
this...... maybe this weekend if I get some things implemented.
