[development] Book to Book-Pages... Many to many relationship??

Here's my situation:

I'm in the process of importing dozens of paper (Word document) manuals into
my Drupal intranet site as books.

One of the main goals of this project is to reduce redundancy... in the
word-document / file share set up, each manual is duplicated five times,
once for each region in which my company operates.
Some of the documents are identical across all regions, yet we still
maintain 5 copies of the document.  (Yikes!)  Others are unique to a region
(thus the separate copies of the manuals).

This brings us to my dilema:  It seems that the book module won't allow the
same node to be placed in multiple books, meaning my goal of redundancy
reduction is out the window!

Does anyone have any suggestions about how to accomplish the functionality
I'm looking for (adding a single node to multiple books)?

I'm sure I could hack the book module to make it work, but I've really been
trying not to tamper with core modules.

Has there been any discussion on this topic before?  Does anyone wish to
discuss the possibility of adding this to the book module officially?

Thanks for any input.
