| the problem seems to be that we do compute the wrong file checksum

| file checksum in install_checksum() itself.
There are 3 different PRs (yours (50846), 51335, and 52109), all more
recent that the last etcupdate commit, that at least refer to the same
problem - with different proposals for fixes. I will seek to find
something that works.
| Come to think of it, one thing that always kinda annoyed me about it
| is that etcupdate always overwrite the checksum file even if the old
| one is the same. Since this is exactly the place where it happens, we
| might want to fix this in one swoop.
Seems reasonable, I will add that to the list.
I'm not sure what I will do with Bill Simpson's PR (23212) from 2003
(1.6ZD !) though, if anyone has any opinions on that one (it relates to
what should update the /etc/moduli file) I'd love to hear them.
