        I'm vote for the version number at the begining of file header.
You may wish to change a header, change file layout etc., because extattr
support is just born and should reserve a way to grow.

        In addition, it allows to write a simple 'extattrupgrade' utility
which will make above tasks more transparent to the end users.
(extattrdowngrade also may have some use :)
