I'm under the impression that HFS is basically a subset of HFS+, i.e. HFS+
working should fix HFS.  I could easily be wrong, though.  Regardless,
they're probably modifying the HFS code to also support HFS+, which
probably would mean that they'd be fixing the HFS code in the process
(since the problems are more general OS-related, rather than actual
filesystem metadata-specific bugs).  But it's hard to say for sure until
somebody actually gets it working.  ;-)
