comment Is it fair to assume that SHA1 collisions won't occur on a set of <100k strings
Thanks all. Note that I'm not worried about deliberate attempts at causing collisions, just likelihood of them occurring by chance.

Sadly, I need paths generated on different machine to hash to the same value. The creation times are not persisted to nanosecond resolution (and in any case I would think this actually has a higher chance of collision than the hash function).
