This hash thing seems nice at first look but I don't know how this could
solve the "move an modify" problem. Considering that in this case there
will be 24 hours between each run it let the user many opportunities to
change the moved files.

I really thing that the "correct" way to do this is to use a custom file
system. SVN's webdav with autocommit on seems to be a nice start even
though there are some problems like those described in subversion's doc
or the fact that files will be remote instead of local.
