I think you're kidding. :)
Default values are good for md5sum compares. But nobody forces you to stay

Ah, you didn't read the code. ;)
It's only 150 lines plus an .ui file.

If you click that icon, the string-compare window opens.
It's this way, because the two line-edits in the kicker would be
really too small. Would be unusable IMHO.
