Hmm, well... The server could compare the new checksum with the
previous checksum. Then if it were *really* paranoid, it could do a
byte-for-byte comparison only after the checksums matched; or it could
just rely on the checksum match entirely. Either way, it's cheap for
the server to check whether a new version of a file is the same as the
previous version.
