it recommends

   if (timestamp has changed)
      return CHANGED; // because at least the timestamp changed
   else if (filesize has changed)
      return CHANGED; // obviously...
   else // timestamp and filesize are unchanged, now make sure:
      compare byte-by-byte.

if your working copy contains 1000 files and you edit 1 of them,
999 files would have to be byte compared. This is not
acceptable. Especially if some of them are things like ISO

always_force_byte_by_byte_compare with default NO seems to be
acceptable to me.
