Didn't know about this one. Yes, linked-buffers would do most of this,
although I suspect inefficiently since it keeps the buffer up to-date
the whole time. From what I can see of shadowfile.el it copies before

This is why I posted linked-buffer.el early; I didn't want to spend
weeks on it, to find out that it had already been done.
