Determing duplicate files using the crc hash value, prvided by some filehoster to prevent downloads of the same file, even if theres a different filename.

raztoki made a suggestionin forum:

[20:17] <raztoki> make it optional in advanced..
[20:18] <raztoki> on advanced user setting, allow checksum to determine deduplication of mirrors
[20:18] <raztoki> disalbe all other mirrors, use first download to determine filename
[20:19] <raztoki> and or prompt within linkgrabber on adding links to downlaod tab, on common hashes to a single filename
[20:19] <raztoki> somethign like they do with archieve files missing
[20:19] <raztoki> sound like a reasonable solution ?
