Re: Adding SHA-512 to the list of digests

That's part of the mop up operation, and I wouldn't want a reliance on
this to preclude adding SHA512 digests for every new/updated package.

Now my memory's still pretty good, but the corner cases when we (skrll
and myself) did this the last time around were the optional distfiles
that could be added, and the other-platform distfiles which could be
downloaded - I don't think these get downloaded automatically to the
mirrors (although I could be wrong, I think they just get the host
platform distfiles with default options).

Having said all that, your suggestion is by far the best way to hit
the vast majority of distfiles, and makes for a much easier way to do
the bulk of the distinfo file entries.
