So, for example:

    - read md5("/")
      * read md5("/trunk/A/mu")
        + compute md5("/trunk/A")
        + compute md5("/trunk")
      * read md5("/trunk/iota")
        + compute md5("/trunk")

where the 'compute()' steps follow those of normal lock creation: read
the digest file, update list of children, write it back.
