While the initial copy requires little space, you are forced to
repeatedly merge in changes to all the customer branches on any
changes of the "common" code. This is a lot of extra work and is
storing the delta for each merge, unless you do a delete/recopy to
all the branches instead.
If possible, I would suggest reorganizing your project to keep the
in one common shared location, and then the customer specific code in
