interesting way

of implementation, one more clear argument for not using the md5 for too serious matters.
OK, it is not that simple to modify the content and make the md5 be the same, but as we see possible.
I am just surprised that they use it in this extend still.

I find it is not a big problem to use the md5 for quick checking the files downloaded from a ftp server, but not so for some very important applications.
