Maybe every file could list "children" and "parents". So if you write a file that modifies another file, you could list that original file as a "parent". Then a link would appear on your page to the "parent", and also on the original file, a link would appear to the "child". That could allow people to rapidly surf through different versions of the program and encourage more collaboration...
