Not at all. Farm doesn't do with raw object. You can play with it on
farm as it is right now. But if we need checksum it, maybe we can create
a header for object.


write(oid, buf, size)
	sha1 = get_sha1(buf, size);
	init_hdr(sha1, size)
	insert(buf, &hdr);
	write_object(odi, buf, size);

read(oid, buf, size)
	sha1 = get_sha1(read_file(oid), size, &hdr);
	verify_sha1(sha1, hdr.sha1);
