Obviously with the knowledge that one is taking off the seat belt that
is in place with the digests... Editing the manifests to remove the
stale entries still keep the digest in place like you intended. If
these then produce a digest failure, I usually refuse to install the
package as this could point to a corrupt or worse, malicious package.
