we have the code to do that still, but its not currently necessary. at
one point aol was requiring a hash of a given chunck of a given file.
when that didn't work, they switched to asking for invalid chunks
(beyond the end of the file for instance, or a 0 byte chunck). then they
gave up and currently aren't even asking for that. we kept the code
around in the client just in case they turn it back on.
