Wouldn't it be better to refresh the list of files after changing settings? so this would not confuse the users.

No, I will not do it. Because, what if someone changes it without admin knowing?

Also, read my previous updated post, I have explained further some things. I will add this into the FAQ, so no confusion will be present anymore.

I have moved away from md5 to SHA1, but since SHA1 collisions were ~ recently discovered by Google, I think to move to at least SHA256 (or 512). But, this will mean even more processing power, some servers will not keep up.

I had idea before to use a template hash table for unmodified core files as a permanent reference, but it would be impractical if anyone does even a minor core change here and there. Maybe as a separate page feature, with manual initiation only.

Sorry, can you explain? Original old plugin was sending simple email notifications, but I found that too slow for admin (it has to login first, then visit the page, and then look...). Emails are 'call for action' (inspection), so if admin expect some changes, it doesn't have to do it right away.

Additionally, emails acts as logs, away from potentially compromised server.

Well, I don't know about that, never had any problems really, both in app on phone or in desktop email client.

I don't mind the size of important emails. At earlier versions, it was just a plain text with line breaks, but then I had to switch to minimal html, and improve readability of things.

The reason is simple: instead of visiting admin dashboard first (too slow), you can right away fire up your FTP client and check things directly, without ever opening your browser. I just find that logical to my workflow.
