We already dropped SHA1, FWIW, so it's md5+sha256. And again, the Oracle
announcement was about MD5-only, so isn't relevant to the discussion.

I do sympathize with the "drop md5sum to see what breaks". But that's a
discussion for after the release. And how you formulate your argument
does not help your case.

Kind regards
