Don't waste time comparing ref files together

Although most people have no use for the Reference state in the Directories panel, it could serve as a nice speed optimization for long scans. Currently, dupeGuru stupidly wastes time comparing ref files together.

For word based searches, the time wasted is insignificant, but for content based ones, it could save IO operations by not reading md5 files of ref files matching.

More importantly, in dupeGuru PE, it would make a scenario where there's only a few picture to be checked against a large picture library much faster.
