Just so it is clear in my own mind.

You are offering to add support for extended
file attributes to flac, the command-line
wrapper around libFLAC to encode and
decode .flac files.  Presumably such support
would reside in libFLAC, and so libFLAC++
and metaflac should also be updated.  (Not
sure whether the various music player input
plugins will also need work.)
