my trz package has support for a lot of different OS X file attributes, including old 'classic', file colors. I sort of liked the idea of color being a file attribute myself. Not your usual one.
I am not 10.9 yet but when I get there if this API concerns this same sort of thing I would be happy to include it in trz anyhow.
It is quite possible to add something like this along with a 'pass through' type file system. So you could possibly come up with it yourself without excessive effort.
