I ran across a buglet due to some errant program I wrote years ago
that put a ^J into part of the filename.

so in the metafile:
This breaks things kinda bad. So I think that path should be
encoded/escaped (html?). This would help destinations that are not
capable of handling character sets not latin1 (or even UTF8).
At the same time, I thought that extended attributes for filesystems
need to be handled as well (see XAR), for ones that have them, like
OSX's metadata forks... NTFS, Ext3(4)?
Thoughts? Also, have an patches since 1.6 been made/accepted yet? It's
been kinda quiet in here.
