Except that's not what you're doing. There's nothing wrong with saying "foo

is "*Because* foo does this thing we can conclude it's a clever thing and we
should do it".

Oracle, Microsoft, IBM, Sybase, Teradata, MySQL, and Firebird have a
clever feature called page checksumming which I think we should copy
because it's simple and effective at detecting page-level corruption
due to torn pages and/or faulty storage hardware.
