Right, and that makes it impossible to solve this problem.

Think about some scenarios.  Let's say I have a web site with two pages:
    ~/web/page1.html
    ~/web/page2.html

Now let's say I use some editor to make a copy of page1 called page1a.html.
    ~/web/page1.html
    ~/web/page1a.html
    ~/web/page2.html

Should page1a.html be considered the same page as page1.html?  What if I
subsequently delete page1.html?  What if I don't?  How long will you wait
before deciding they are the same?
