A PackFile created with a diffrent version of core.ops leads to
strange not easy to find errors. Therefor a fingerprint of core.ops is
entered to the packfile.

The fingerprint of the core.ops file is generated out of signatures of
the operations (comments and implementation details dont contribute).
This is relativ easy, because the complete parsing of core.ops is done

I implemented in a really hacky way: abusing the padding bytes. But
this way it can be implemented *now*. When the named segments are in,
the fingerprint will go to a segment on its own. (Now I can only use
10 bytes of the 16 byte MD5-Hash, but hey we don't want to make
