comment On Linux, can you write to HFS+ extended attributes?
@derobert: are you suggesting that I can just push files with HFS+ extended attributes to the server and they'll be preserved no matter what FS is used on the server? And that I can modify them from OS X clients?

@derobert: FreeNAS (which includes AFP, NFS, Samba, etc.), if it will do what I need. But any Linux (or BSD) product would be fine.

comment Converting relative path to absolute path
The -f switch does not exist on Mac OS X (at least as of 10.8.5). Without the -f switch it just returns an error code.

comment How to set up a “child” proxy that doesn't need a “parent” proxy
The solution to that problem is to use CNTLM, which I'm already using. It does mention using a PAC, but doesn't explicitly answer the question whether a PAC file will work globally. Can you answer that?

Won't this only work for browsers? I need something that works for yum, curl, git, wget, etc., etc.

comment Run “logout script” for non-login shells
D'oh! Of course, the -. I ended up putting trap . "$HOME/.bash_logout" 0 in the .bashrc before coming back here and being reminded why I should always use -... a forgotten habit...

revised Is there any way for group “owners” to have full rights of a file or directory owner?
narrowing focus on `chmod` since deletion is unrelated

ahh... I knew you had to have write permissions on the directory before you could delete things in it, but I didn't realize that the permissions on the file were irrelevant. Thanks. I'm editing the question to reflect the fact that deletion is a different matter entirely.
