That's (almost?) the point:
findimagedupes (or the c++-implementation finddupes.cpp) is intended for
the location of duplicate images, with a given fuzziness (not too far
apart in size, very similar content).
There are a lot of tools which find exact duplicates of files, but those
matching images are really rare.
