// As of Mac OS X 10.4 ("Tiger"), files can be tagged with metadata describing
// various attributes.  Metadata is integrated with the system's Spotlight
// feature and is searchable.  Ordinarily, metadata can only be set by
// Spotlight importers, which requires that the importer own the target file.
// However, there's an attribute intended to describe the origin of a
// file, that can store the source URL and referrer of a downloaded file.
// It's stored as a "com.apple.metadata:kMDItemWhereFroms" extended attribute,
// structured as a binary1-format plist containing a list of sources.  This
// attribute can only be populated by the downloader, not a Spotlight importer.
// Safari on 10.4 and later populates this attribute.
// With this metadata set, you can locate downloads by performing a Spotlight
// search for their source or referrer URLs, either from within the Spotlight
// UI or from the command line:
//     mdfind 'kMDItemWhereFroms == "http://releases.mozilla.org/*"'
// There is no documented API to set metadata on a file directly as of the
// 10.5 SDK.  The MDSetItemAttribute function does exist to perform this task,
// but it's undocumented.

  // It exists in the 10.4 and 10.5 runtimes.  To play it safe, do the lookup
  // at runtime instead of declaring it ourselves and linking against what's
  // provided.  This has two benefits:
  //  - If Apple relents and declares the function in a future SDK (it's
  //    happened before), our build won't break.
  //  - If Apple removes or renames the function in a future runtime, the
  //    loader won't refuse to let the application launch.  Instead, we'll
  //    silently fail to set any metadata.
