If I understand you correctly this is *not* the solution.

Imagine f1 being a 100MB copy of /dev/urandom, or a 2GB video (both
incompressible) - then you know why I'd like to have some kind of link; even
if it's a copyfrom, which disturbs the history of f2.

If the files are not in some way related, subversion will store both
independently - and use too much space.
