What do xml post files get converted into a hash?

Is there any benefit to this approach? If not, I might spend some time trying to get it to display the actual title of the post as the file name, so I can easily figure out which file is which.

afaik (correct me if im wrong)
Its only the filename that becomes a GUID  - no clashes that way - say you create a post with the same title - if the post title were pkey or filename, that would be an issue.

its only the contents of the file thats displayed..look inside the xml, there resides the real post title and content.

i dont think this is a cause of any overhead..

Thanks! I was just curious because I have seen that GUID convention used for image names as well and couldn't figure out why. I still don't see the reason why, because you shouldn't have duplicate posts with the same title in them anyway.
