by implementing Johan's ideas:


I suspect the hardlinks will be best reserved for DVD use, but
maybe I'm just over cautious. (edit one version of the duplicate,
you change them all; delete one version of the hardlinked file
and the others remain intact). If it's a problem we just have to
make the scanning list exclude those. (e.g. if you run it over
the a .svn/ dir it will link both the working version and the
backup version, so 'svn diff' will no longer work)
