AFAIK it requires changing the length (because the same MD5 is found by padding the file). If the length of the files is also stored, it'll suddenly get a whole lot harder to create the right MD5 sum.(But of course, if the new content of the file is much shorter than the old content, there's quite a bit of space for doing padding).
