[KPhotoAlbum] Likelihood of duplicate images?

Hi all,

A couple of questions from the perspective of writing a tool to work
with KPA:

* How likely is a user to have binary-identical images in their KPA
  store? (Or, is there a reason for this to be intentional/not
  undesirable?)
* Does KPA have a documented behavior (that I should mimic) for
  handling duplicates?

Why I'm interested:

I'm writing a tool [1] for generating a facetable web gallery from KPA
databases, and at the core is a utility that creates and manages a
"shadow" database containing all the information in the KPA DB *plus*
persistent unique image IDs. This latter functionality has to mimic
KPA's own resolution behavior.
