Agreed, the "modules" is a bit of a red herring but at least conveys
an idea of functionality needed.

All of the mentioned issues would be solved if the filesystem supported
internal hard links between directories. File hard links would be nice
but not strictly necessary.

The functionality could be achieved by covering each of the cases mentioned
below individually, but intuitively it seems more error prone to have
to cover each case instead of letting the backend handle it.

So then: how about an issue for (repository) filesystem internal hard links?
