Which reminds me.  Are there any md5sums (or, better yet, signatures)
available for the official CD-ROMs, src.tar.gz, or srcsys.tar.gz?

I wish there were, but I have never seen them.  Maybe I missed them?

Even an MD5 file that has a gpg signature available would be good.  This
should also apply to the basic installation tarballs imho.
