The idea is not actually without merit ... The checksums apparently
aren't sufficient to deter users from doing it.

Maybe simply bziping it would be sufficient. Then we could claim it is
not to protect us from users but for efficiency ;-}

(Like the checksums are _of course_ meant to protect against data
corruptions; never mind that 95% of the real use cases are admins ;-)
