This is an older article, linked to from the above page:


It discusses 'bundles' and filesystem meta-data in Mac OS X.

It's interesting to me, because I'm wondering about how we should 'plug'
back-ends and widgets into Loci.  We could spread a plug-in throughout the
directory structure (e.g., placing all icons in an icon directory) or keep all
the parts of a plug-in together (e.g., back-end 'foo' would have its own
directory with _all_ of its components kept within).  I'm leaning towards the
latter.  Any thoughts?
