Fl-cow is an LD_PRELOAD library which allows you to utilize hardlinks
to save disk space by causing hardlinked files to be copied rather
than overwritten as they are changed.
This is useful for making changes to large source trees while keeping
a copy of the original tree to generate patches from. Also, if you are
using the Arch revision control system with working copies hardlinked
to a revision library, using fl-cow can prevent revision library
