Has anyone implemented a filesystem with copy-on-write semantics?  I'd like
to be able to, for instance, have a file which will be a link to another file,
until it gets written to, at which point, it becomes a new file, containing
whatever new data.  Is this monumentally stupid for a reason which will
become apparent before this message makes it back to me, and/or is it
implemented already?
