You've got customers dumb enough to upload text files as binary, but smart enough to know or care what an MD5 checksum is?

Humanity is doomed...

    That was only one example of a potential pitfall. As mentioned, automatically altering customer files could cause plenty of other problems. Further, I could easily see myself checking an MD5 sum but forgetting to FTP as text and then wondering what the problem is :)
