Being one to advocate plugins, I advocate plugins here :)

While on the topic of hashing, what specifically are the envisioned
domains of the hashes? I would particularly like the ability to retrieve
the hash of the head revision of the file, because I can foresee that
being a very useful tool in scripting. I expect that other hashes would be
useful (hashes of the diff "list"?), but the head revision comes in handy
when you're reconciling an offline workspace with the server...

Of course, I may be mixing a Perforce metaphor with The Subversion Way, in
which case I retract the above :)
