How are things now? Does EPrints warn automatically if a file differs in
respect to the checksum from the state stored in the database?
How can I arrange for EPrints to do that?
Does the EPrints ex-/import xml format have a file-associated element
"hash" or alike (guess for every dataobj field you can have a
corresponding field, right?) that is verified upon downloading the file
from another server? Would really appreciate that, but according to
DataObj::File source, there aren't yet any verification methods for sha/md5.
