Hi,

It looks like the description of stat.UF_OPAQUE and stat.UF_NOUNLINK are swapped in the Python v2.7.1 documentation:
  http://docs.python.org/library/stat.html

> stat.UF_OPAQUE
>     The file may not be renamed or deleted.
>
> stat.UF_NOUNLINK
>     The directory is opaque when viewed through a union stack.


Compare to CHFLAGS(2) in the BSD System Calls Manual:
  http://developer.apple.com/library/mac/#documentation/darwin/reference/manpages/man2/chflags.2.html

>            UF_OPAQUE      The directory is opaque when viewed through a union stack.

Thanks,
  -Chris Ford
