Actually, it's not exactly what I implemented. I just moved the verbose
code from the functions for single files to the function that processes
all files, so that the hashes are printed out after all the files are

Although I have an Ok from Alexandre, I still have mixed feelings about
the issue. I don't want to spend too much efforts on the issue, but on the
other hand, my patch removes some functionality that autoscan _pretended_
to have.

Maybe you have a specific suggestion, I don't know. Anyway, I'll have to
do it if we decide to print hashes for every file, otherwise the
performance decrease for the non-verbose mode could be significant.
