That's a change I don't really want to make - the *SUMS we have are
specific to the Debian layout, and AFAIK we're not the only people
using jigdo.

That makes much more sense, yes. As/when/if I find the time, I'll
fight with the C++ in jigdo-file to look for better checksums.

  far end, and the goat, terminated over the SCSI chain with a silver-handled
  knife whilst burning *black* candles. --- Anthony DeBoer
