My main concerns are:
- Format of the data -- We now have plists, and should use them. The
format send down to user space should be the same format as device
drivers (eventually) get for their attachment information.
- Related, I'm concerned about plugging into the "print" hook for this.
Basically, you're right on the money about "replace cf_loc with
property lists to get somewhat better" :-)
