Is this really true? If I change an "a" to a "b", then the file size wouldn't
have changed, and the byte comparison wouldn't be done.

Regardless, your comments now make me wonder what was going on with NG3. If
there really are binary changes to the libraries when the 4GL is run, it's
interesting that it somehow knew it wasn't a significant change from a
programming point of view. I never noticed any "missed" updates, where a
commit did not include a file that had really been changed.
