Timestamps are useless, because they won't match up with the timestamps
of the actual source file (consider extract on localhost, upload via FTP
toward remote host - timestamps are changed). And checksums would seem
to only ever be used to validate upgrades, which seems to duplicate the
schema_version in the system table.
