Oh, I'm not saying to recalculate the MD5 sums of everything on startup
-- my proposal is to look for modified files on the basis of stat(), and
then recompute the MD5.
Good point regarding LAN-stored photo collections. Perhaps this could be
an option for startup (off by default), or even just a plugin.

But that recalculates *all* checksums. :-/
KPA already calls stat() for all files, correct? Or does it just check
directory listings for new files?
