It's doubtful at least whether xattr support is a good thing, because
it's too easily gets misused: for example, there were viruses on
Windows which effectively hidden themselves in NTFS streams. And there
are personal data leaking issues I've pointed out earlier. But the
question "xarttrs: to be or not to be everywhere" is totally offtopic,
because it's what OS developers should decide.

The worst case is Nepomuk becoming a crashy resource hog again, which
will turn in cutting it off or disabling by default in most OSes.
