pdfTeX could do this by itself: Store the md5 of the shortest n
objects (e.g. n = 1024) smaller then x bytes (e.g. x = 1024,
longer objects will typically be unique) and replace new
identical objects with references to the already existing ones.

This would e.g. condense all the 
obj <</S /GoTo /D [n 0 R /Fit]>> endobj
in the pdfTeX manual. :-)
