For anyone who didn't know yet...

Apparently there is a hash thingy in the API, but it doesn't seem to
be documented. I am checking that out.

 Note there is now a properly-indexed SHA-1 hash field on the image table in
 recent versions. I have the vague recollection that there's a way to do lookups
 by hash in the API, but not in the UI at present.

 Dupe file warnings are also not currently made.
