I'd rather assume that if ctime and size have not changed, then the file
hasn't changed, even though it's possibly incorrect.

Detecting corruption is *not* essential when I want to look
at `tla file-diffs' or `tla changes'.
It's even less essential to detect corruption of file BAR when I do
`tla file-diffs FOO'.

And if we really want to detect corruption, how about MD5 instead of inodes?
