:-) Actually this is the only way the checksum can be verified ;-) as
soon as you extract it, there is no way (besides downloading xpi,
extracting and md5suming all the files) to verify the authenticity of
upstream release.

This is what I think and that is why I would like to move over keeping
original .xpi. And the question is did anyone done it proper way to
automate it with uscan + svn-upgrade... :-)
