Look for duplicate files with linksearch
To avoid #5 it would be useful to look for the IA URL in the linksearch API and perhaps confirm with the CommonsMetadata API. I'll send a patch at some point.

And we can check Wikidata for matches between Commons files and IA identifiers too (although that's not all that widely used yet, I think).

@Samwilson Do we close this task as the improved tool does look for IA identifiers?

Samwilson claimed this task.

Yes, it looks like it. :-)
