Default Stream checksum

Most quality ripping standards require 'MD5 locking' of files. Personally I think it is very bad idea because modifing tags, calculating RG values, etc, modifies file checksum. Then there is no use of it at all. My idea is to add stream checksum feature which would be written to MPC header and couldn't be modified. This would give a possibility to implement fast checking for broken streams (instead of checking each frame) and remove the need of useless MD5 file locking.
