Agreed.

We could even make the formats understand both but produce any new lines with $MD5$... although such things tend to get messy. And the dynamic format would need to be fixed by Jim, whom I haven't heard from in quite a while now.

I'll leave making the determination to you and Jim.

This is a last resort approach.  I dislike it.
