Status: Partially Accepted
Change Description: none yet
Rationale: This has been proposed a number of times over the last few years. It
probably deserves a closer look again, especially from the context of an
optional reliability indicator that gives the user a warning rather that a
mandatory integrity check that blocks access to the file altogether. However,
it's probably best if we wait for the new features we've already added to be
implemented more widely before we start adding more features, so I'm going to
mark this LATER for now.
