This wouldn't help at all.

Update is only ever slow if the client file has been modified.  In this 
case the file has to be sent to the server, which is able to compare 
with its reference copies and (potentially) do a 3-way merge.  No 
checksums will help here.

If the client file has not been modified the update is a simple 
comparison of versions and the sending of a patch.
