Please... What's the point of this discussion?

It's simple: the default tar:

tar (GNU tar) 1.14

Modified to support extended attributes.

has been patched to also preserve extended attributes on MacOS X.

End of story.

The solution is one of

	a. not use tools which make extended attributes
	b. use the workarounds to drop those attributes during dist

There's no use in beating a dead horse.
