Maybe Maven itself need a new plugin, that checks the md5 sums automatically. If Maven is
in online mode it should always use the online MD5 sum (if available or warn if no md5 sum
is available online or locally). Such a MD5 verify goal should be in the dependend goals of
the artifact:deploy or the goals of the distribution plugin.
