Brett,

  This is a very good start ; thanks.

  -- MD5 checksum format : in my experience the format doesn't
     matter much ; it is always easy to grab a 32 byte hex
     number from any format. Counter examples are easy to find of
     course (filenames like '41eab7db2910a04500751bbc2ed7f5bf')
     but in general, different formats aren't a problem.

     Perhaps it is wize to state that md5 checksums should
     be in a '.md5' (lowercase) file because some people
     put the md5 checksum in a '.MD5' file.

  -- For cleanup purposes it would be nice if one could link
     something (X) in the repository, to something (Y)
     in '/dist/' : we can flag X for removal if Y is gone.
