Everything's possible, of course.
But if tla updated the inode-sigs (at the time where it would otherwise
hardlink the file back to the revlib), then I wouldn't need to worry about
hardlinking and I'd get the same "one stat" performance.  And that would
still work after I completely erase my revlib.
That's how all other tools work.
