Given that a) we're almost there, and b) adding a debsums (or
dh_md5sums) invocation to debian/rules isn't exactly an intrusive
change, I'm not sure that 'excessive' is the right word. I'd call it
'ambitious', perhaps overly so, but it should be doable.

Of course, whether we decide to indeed do so would be up to the release

I'm inclined to agree that it's too late to add another checksum
algorithm at this point in time; that should be a release goal for

The biometric identification system at the gates of the CIA headquarters
