swh-identify: support recursive checksumming of directories
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

swh-identify should support recursive checksumming of directories, in the sense of showing on output the checksums of all files (recursively) contained in the directory rather than only the checksum of the top-level directory.
Associating checksums to specific files will become trivial once T1133 is completed.

Recursive listing should be optional, and enabled passing -r/--recursive.

As an update: a feature equivalent to this one has been implemented in swh-scanner by @DanSeraf.
I guess it would still be useful to have (as it seems like a natural need) also in swh-identify, but of course the code should not be duplicated.
