I'd be interested to hear how this version does.

I also have a patch to do hard links, but that doesn't seem to be much
of a win:
Old (Best of 3)
real    0m1.365s
user    0m1.112s
sys     0m0.236s

New (Best of 3)
real    0m1.259s
user    0m1.052s
sys     0m0.176s

A mere 1.08x the speed!

I've attached the hard-links patch-- it may be more of a win on large
trees.  (It depends on the previous bundle)
