I don't think we've generally had it there in the rescue image. But
you're probably right that we should.
Thanks. BTW, there's no implanted check sum in the src stuff either.
Thanks for putting the check sum implanting stuff in /usr/bin when you
split the package. It makes it useful for anyone wanting to use that
verification strategy with whatever ISOs they might create, music, video,
books or whatever.
