The big deal is to keep the text you compare actualized.

And for that, you either hammer the FDB till you melt it, or use the 80 digits trick.

In my database there is no need to detect any merge, because I use a special format to store the data (which I described here in the past). The only problem, again, is updating my DB for sequences I do not work, and this I do very seldom (like once, twice, per year, when I remember about). But if something goes bad with FDB (god forbid!) just to let you know that I have a copy (albeit may not be very actual).
I do see how this approach is of no continuing use past the current moment.
