Hello!

another idea:
Do you think a MD5: field would be useful? MD5 generates "fingerprints"
of files (rfc1321).
We have e.g. added a "coversion" to our Wustl-FTP-Server that allows
you to "get file.md5" and you receive the MD5: checksum of that file.
This could be useful - besides the filename - to identify identical
files.
