I don't believe that. Sure, the difference between producing one
checksum for a file and producing several is negligible, but changing
the checkout/update logic to send only the differing chunks of the file
is not a simple change,

"The project" has to maintain the code indefinitely. We can't assume
that a certaini individual will always be available to maintain a
particular piece of code. That's why we insist on a uniform coding
style, checkin comment format and documentation in the code.
