I've _considered_ it in the past, but I've written it off since so few people
use it and I've not had any uses for it myself.

Also, I would prefer to see a live site that actually uses this so that I
could verify my work against and I don't know of any. So no, I haven't really
considered how it would be implemented the nicest possible way, but I figure
it would need some "hook" in the body receiving code that can run the hash
code on the content when activated.
