The provided Cyrus tool "make_md5" is for validating replication.  It  
would, for instance, have found the recently discussed bug in  
sync_server that caused random files to be overwritten in the event  
that sync_server reused a stale staging file.  It would probably be  
cool if there were documentation somewhere that advised people on how  
to run it and how to use it to validate replication.
