Hi Carsten,

That sounds like a very good idea.  Currently Org-babel caches results
using a much simpler scheme (only run the block if there are no results
in the buffer), but what you recommend would be an efficient way of
noticing if the command has changed.  When discussing this previously we
had only considered approaches using the date of execution.

I'll add this idea to the org-babel tasks.

Thanks! -- Eric

ps. does Org-mode already have a method of generating sha1 hashes?  I
    just did an `elisp-index-search' for sha1 and nothing came up.
