This is exactly the problem we had with the VMMaker. So far the best
workaround answer is the FileCopyPlugin we wrote to deal with it. You
might like to try grabbingthe VMMaker stuff from
http://sumeru.stanford.edu/tim/pooters/SqFiles/deltas and see if it
makes any sense in your application.
Clearly, a more principled approach is needed sometime.
