If you are truly paranoid - then have the dependency not just lis thte
name; but also mention the MD5 or some UUID (and have the UUID resolve
into the full name, some date, file length and MD5). I.e. adding a level
of indirection to make the metadata richer; leaving room for things like
xml sig's in the future.
