Talking about fingerprints, something similar is needed for the font system 
as well; when one generates a font.tfm+font.vf and afterwards decides to 
use a non virtual one (i.e. regenerates a new font.tfm), the vf is still 
used since it has the same name but no longer has to be used (if one is not 
aware of that file being there ...); if such a vf would have a fingerprint 
for each referenced file (say a checksum or so), then that could be used to 
determine inconsistencies.

Ah .. so much clean up needed (like the hyphenation mess)
