10.6: Show (and hide) hidden files in Open/Save dialogs

sadly, the shortcut does not work in Time Machine when you really want to restore something from '/usr' you still have to make the finder display hidden files

defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles -bool TRUE
killall Finder
run time machine

defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles -bool FALSE
killall Finder

To restore something from /usr, just go there with the "Go to folder…" menu item and then enter Time Machine.

Awesome. Your comment (in combination with Time Machine) saved my bacon. Thanks!
