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.
