Since I do this myself (see about five months ago for my last post on the
subject.... sorry.) I will have to pipe in here... "It works". The only 
thing is, you have to do something about conversations between people with
alternate histories. I tend to change names... so the name of a place slated
for this sort of continual reincarnation is actually set to a phonetic
variable seeded with the name of the viewer. I can go into more detail if you
are interested.
