I know, I was think appart from mangling that it could be a good

Anyway, given Thomas and your's objections about changing the checksum
feature which, BTW I agree with - I wasn't thinking about mangling. I
think the best thing is to leave the checksum function as is. 

Because if a user choose to checksum a file he will probably want to
pay the extra penalty the test takes in CPU cycles. I mean, for a
program like monit, correctness is more important than speed.

+1 for not changing the checksum function
