If you want to access a filesystem image file *as a Linux filesystem*, I 
think you probably have to mount it with a "loop" device, which requires 
either root/sudo privs, or perhaps a fixed path that can be put into 
"/etc/fstab" with privs granted for normal users to mount it.  (There is 
another option, using FUSE, but I think "loop" will be easier.)

I would guess that any building of HFS+ images would be done on OS X,
