Comment (by jhuntwork at linuxfromscratch.org):

 Admittedly, my first incentive for getting this in was for the use of
 jhalfs, and even then when I brought up the idea, all I wanted was a
 static MD5SUMS file. See this thread:


 Since we provide direct links to upstream tarballs now, having a md5sum
 available is a nice extra for the users. They can confirm that they're
 getting the same package the devs got. Of course it's not necessary, but
 it may be useful to many.

 jhalfs will greatly benefit from it. And since it is designed partly as a
 tool to help devs build and test quicker and more accurately, I think it's
 justified. You may want to consider it for CLFS as well, since jhalfs now
 includes a module to build that, too.
