Using the apple schema file is probably the easiest, although you are  
probably going to just want to pick the extra attributes that you need.

If you are adding in your own additions that are based on, but not  
actually, the Apple ones it may be best to get your own private  
enterprise number. When I was messing with all of this the Leopard  
schema wasn't public, so that was the route I had to take.
