Thats pretty much what you have now with up2date. Disk is cheap. You have
all the base .hdr's from the install.

If you start bt with a file that some segment has changed on then it thinks
its restarting froma partial run so fills it in. If segments move its 
screwed up. That means a single hdr archive which simply grows on the end
as errata should be ok as I understand it - and in part the idea relies
on this.
