Use MacOS 9 Finder in OS X

That's interesting. I can think one handy use for this: when copying files it bypasses UNIX permissions.

Hmmm... that could be considered a security problem.

Why would it do that? Just like any other Classic app, it seems to run with the privileges of the user, at least on 10.4.8.
