tool to turn redundant files into symlinks

Hi folks,

For a package problem I'm trying to solve (#414422), it would be nice to 
have a tool that could find duplicate files (ala fslint[1] or fdupes[2]) 
and turn them into symlinks.

I could create something that does this just for this package, but does 
anyone know of such a pre-existing tool in Debian?

[1] AFAICT fslint can do hardlinks, but not symlinks.
[2] fdupes lists duplicate files, but does not take any action.
