The only downside I see with hidden files is the following usecase :
Tom uses windows, and gives his usb key to Sally
Sally plugs the usb key into her linux system, and changes some sorting
properties. The file manager creates a .directory (or whatever it's called)
file on the usb key.
When Tom gets the usb key back, he sees lot of dot files, and doesn't know
what they're about.
I don't know if dot files are automatically marked as "hidden" in the FAT
sense when using a FAT fs on Linux... How do we address that ?
There is a hidden attribute that should be used on filesystems that
support it :)
Clearly we need a lib to abstract that. We also need to make that lib
totally desktop independant...<br>
And also I'd really be happy if we reach a point where the solution we
choose can be defined as a standard (that was my initial point). I
guess that implies that there should be more than two people
participating in this discussion :-) Maybe a blog article would be a
good way to get people into the discussion, but I don't have a blog :-s<br>
