If I'm not mistaken, that was the OP's point: having a "check repository
for consistency" command that can be run whenever deemed necessary and that
returns the files that are inconsistent, not verifying the checksums at
every read or write. Whether the whole file is checksummed or individual
sections of it is also not relevant in this context.
