The software I have written to program my flash cartridge uses the file to determine bankswitching.  It also has a software option
to create a new entry including the MD5 checksum for you automatically, if a
game you have is not in the list (homebrew).  Perhaps even if you don't want
a Flash Cart for development purposes... this feature of the software will
help you out.
