Fixing Time Machine Skippage

Time Machine has been skipping some folders, and every simple trick I tried failed to make it back them up. Finally, I dug deep and found the problem: the OS X Extended Attributes for those folders contained this attribute: com.apple.metadata:com_apple_backup_excludeItem

The “how to remove this” instructions came from stackoverflow.com.
