Having looked at that, I'm not sure if this really helps:

As I understand, the smudge command is run on checkout to convert the
blob in the repository to the format that is desired in the working
tree. But this is the opposite of what I need: on checkout, I need to
convert the text data in the repository to a blob in the working tree.

Furthermore, I need to convert multiple text files into one blob, will
smudge/clean seem to do just 1:1 conversions.

Am I missing something? Are there any other options?
