There's no way to do this right now, but it's a good idea.  We don't do
anything with md5sums right now because that's an expensive operation
that can take quite a while on large files.

We might be able to do it for something like the last 4k of a file, and
compare that and the file size.  It's not exact but it's probably good

In any case, feel free to file that as an enhancement request, and
patches are always welcome. :)
