      Description

      When the media importer finds that an object representation already exists with the same media file (matched via MD5) normally it skips import of the file. This behavior should be modified such that if the existing representation in not linked to any import target (Eg. an object record) it should be considered "orphan" and linked to the target. This modification would allow the reuse of unlinked representations during import, avoiding reupload and reprocessing of media in situations where reimport of target records (but not representations) is required.
