I've implemented some POC code and deduped my Cygwin mirror (it is
missing most of KDE and the cross-Cygwin compilation toolchains).  This
took a solid 12 hours of flat out 400% CPU load on my SandyBridge laptop
and ballooned the page file to 21GiB.  But it also removed almost
exactly a third from the repo's size (going from 81.2GiB to 51.4GiB), so
projected to the full repo it's slightly more than my original estimate.


Regards,
Achim.
