I think it is a nice idea, but isn't it a bit different in semantics to
the current checksum based validation?

At the moment we check for the exact version of the binary, while with
pgp based validation we would check for an exact version released by the
owner of the key.

Do you think this is a problem? On the other hand I trust that mechanism
all the time for my ubuntu distro and it would be the same for windows,
BSD and all the others, right?
