And it's ok, because the next runs mkiv will *not* rebuild the cache,
and in mkiv we use fonts mostly by name.
If I understand correctly, checksum or something similar  (why not a
binary cmp then ? just one byte is enough)  must be done at *every*
runs -- make no  sense ,most the times check will be useless .
