Rather than introducing a new system, why not unify the _link, _aggregate
and your branch idea? Would be much nicer.

a) Propagate links and aggregates back to the original project, so it is
    possible to see, where the own data is used (equals your list command).
In my proposal there is no finer classification what "creating a branch
project" means yet. That's simply because I am not sure yet, and I would
not exclude linking or aggregating.

Fine. I think there is lots of potential in link and aggregate, which is not used at all at the moment.

b) Allow better handling of patches:
    - Allow to edit the patched files and recreate a patch from it
      (instead of download and handmaking patches).
That's a good idea.

When doing so, don't forget a conflict management in "<<<<" diff style.

d) Add your notification system in a slightly modified way.
What modifications are you thinking of?

Make a prototype and I'll tell you :-)
