 Replying to [comment:1 igloo]:
 > Having the hashes shown is probably a good idea regardless, but I would
 have thought that distro packagers would be downloading the tarball anyway
 in order to test that the packages they are making are buildable.

 Agreed. Nice to have but not critical. Also, if one wanted to have distros
 avoid downloading then we'd need more than just sha1. For example gentoo
 uses a whole bunch of hash types.
