1. user open file
   a) calculate CRC for opened file and store into memory

2. user try save file
   a) calculate CRC for file which would be replaced
   b) compare two CRC
   c) if CRC are different notify user that someone had changed the
file and suggest merge changes with merge tool
   d) if CRC is identical just replace file on disk.

That would be really very convenient than it is now.
