Bug#662080: ITP: hadori -- Hardlinks identical files

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
X-Debbugs-CC: debian-devel@lists.debian.org

   Package name: hadori
        Version: 0.2

    Description: Hardlinks identical files
 This might look like yet another hardlinking tool, but it is the only one
 which only memorizes one filename per inode. That results in less merory
 consumption and faster execution compared to its alternatives. Therefore
 (and because all the other names are already taken) it's called
 "HArdlinking DOne RIght".
 Advantages over other hardlinking tools:
  * predictability: arguments are scanned in order, each first version is kept
  * much lower CPU and memory consumption
  * hashing option: speedup on many equal-sized, mostly identical files

The initial comparison was with hardlink, which got OOM killed with a hundred 
backups of my home directory. Last night I compared it to duff and rdfind 
which would have happily linked files with different st_mtime and st_mode.

I need a sponsor. I'll upload it to mentors.d.n as soon as I get the bug
