Assuming you're willing to write new code, of course you can do that.


Device mapper does it.  See the last email I just sent with DM pseudo
code for COW.

Note, DM calls them volumes, not partitions but the logic is the same.

Also, a lot of filesystems support a separate journal partition.  So
you have data in the journal that references the primary volume.
