Er, well, programmers are users too...

What about this:

   Maybe some sort of post-command `hey these files were updated, here
   have a go at unifying them with the library' hook could take care of
   this?  This hook could just choose a library somewhere and for those
   files that are the same [after updating], replace them with
   appropriate hard-links.

Hook name something like `updated-files' and somehow accept a list of
files (on stdin?).

Presumably this could also be done with post-command hooks for
replay/update/star-merge etc (are there such hooks?), though a bit less
efficiently, and with a bit more bother -- if there were a `link-sync'
command, it could be used in these hooks to do the work (right?).

We have met the enemy, and he is us.  -- Pogo
