10.6: No more easily-found hidden preferences
Authored by: Chealion on Aug 31, '09 10:15:54AM

For those wanting to try decompressing the command you're looking for is /usr/bin/afscexpand

The obfuscation however is not due to the HFS+ compression.

As an example decompressing a copy of the Finder as a test and the file size changed by only a hundred kilobytes (and it was icons that grew larger) - Contents/MacOS/Finder was unchanged.

I recall hearing that the way app bundles are built in Xcode has changed - but am completely shy on any details as it was during WWDC when I heard about that.
