Ok, I'll take a look when I have a chance. I find that I often get
errors during scans (missing metadata or permissions errors) so I
frequently interrupt to fix problems as it goes.

Excellent. I don't remember whether this was something Jason said he
would consider, but I'm glad to hear you agree.

Could this be done with a filesystem utility? There are some tools
already out there to clean up and dedup filesystems by calculating
hashes and making links. Since PhotoFloat doesn't rewrite anything,
hardlinks would be safe and it seems pretty easy to adapt them as
a post-processing step of scanner.py?
