If absent, they are omitted from the dump. But since the FS is always
calculating them when new contents are added, all loads get the
checksums for free.

 Is it a good idea to dump/load the repository just to get the
 checksums into there for all files?

I can't tell your tone of voice. Are you asking that with one
raised eyebrow and a readied rebuttal? Or are you just asking if, in
my opinion, I think all repos admins just dump/load? :-)

My advice to admins would be to dump/load if they want all their
storage checksummed, not just the mods that occur after the upgrade to
0.17. If they don't care that much, they can just wait until a
dump/load is necessary (schema change, or whatever).
