I'm looking for information on Single Instance Storage Filesystems in
Linux (or BSD).  I'm very familiar with the M$ implementation, but not on
Linux.  Can anyone post links or offer advice based on experience?

For those not familiar, single instance storage is a technology that will
inspect the filesystem of a given machine and remove identical files,
replacing them with a link or reference to a single file.  This obviously
saves a great deal of disk space.
