The more I've sat back and though about this one, the more reasonable it
seems. All it really takes is teaching the library code to look to see
if there's any previous revision in the library, and if so, try
hardlinking against that. 

I can see a minor problem or two (which upon second thought probably
apply to building the library forward!)
that I bet that exist with forward

You sure? That doesn't sound like what AB (Bentley) is doing to me. I
think his work does something along the lines of "If I want to tla get 
this--that--1--patch-80, and there are cacherevs at patch-20 and
patch-90, then get the cacherev at 90, and reverse the patches between
patch-80 and patch-90 to get to patch-80"
