    I"m not even sure it would.  Some of the reasons for conflicts can be that
    you have local modifications so the md5sum would still be different.

Regenerating loaddefs with local modifications will certainly
cause differences between your loaddefs and the standard one.
People who do that will have to cope with the consequences.

However, at present it seems that such differences occur even if you
have made no local modifications, which is a more common case and
encountered by people with less experience.  This is because the
modtime of the local checkout copy is different from the modtime of
someone else's checkout.  Using a checksum (md5 or other) instead
of the file modtime would solve that problem.

    which should mean that merging is never done any more (but you'll
    probably need to check out a new workarea for the new setting to
    take effect).

What are the results of this?
