"server-less" local modification detection?

Suppose you don't have always a connection to your CVS server, but you want
the client to check if a file is locally modified. Time and size based
checks are not sufficient for this task. What you need is some kind of
checksum (MD5) which you can check against modifications. In the best case
these checksums get stored in file CVS\Entries AND may be embedded as tag in
sourcefiles (would enable runtime checks within the software).

Would it be hard to integrate this feature into the CVS sources? I'm not
requesting an official feature, but I just want to discuss the technical pro
and contras ...

Regards, Tom
