Speaking of HFS+ and hard links.. Last I heard they were implemented in a way that required
adding a file (or link) to some special hidden directory. Once you had done some thousand hard
links the performance became more and more horrible until the system was rebooted (the directory
gets wiped at startup). I wonder if that ever gets fixed.
