[REBOL] Re: NTFS Stream Fun

Yeah, I should have said, "... in terms of what I now know NTFS is capable of, and the fact that REBOL transparently handles this [on WindowsNT, 2000 and XP]". Encapsulating stream usage like you suggest, and taking advantage of it on platforms that support it, sounds like a good approach to me IMHO. Even in a Windows only shop you have to deal with the fact that while servers probably run with NTFS there will be at least *some* Win95/98/ME clients out there, or devices that are FAT16/FAT32 based.
