It would be great if you could set an ext2 volume's label by editing
the name in the Finder.

    I think so to, and my FS plugin handles this, but for some reason
    the automounter refused to recognize the option. I don't know
    why.

    Perhaps you need to implement ext2_setattrlist? I found this code
    which seems to be where UFS does this:

    bsd/ufs/ufs/ufs_attrlist.c

    Actually, ext2 has had attrlist support for a long while now, way
    before UFS did (UFS did not support this in Jag).

    http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/ext2fsx/src/kern/
    ext2_attrlist.c

    I'll have to look at the UFS code though, it may show me what I'm
    missing. Thanks for the link.

    This feature is now in 1.1d2 (for Panther only).
