 Windows users on our blog and elsewhere are being confused by the fact
 that the sha256sums for our exes don't match the downloaded files. This
 problem will probably get worse once we sign the Mac packages..

 We might be able to communicate this to them indirectly by providing two
 sets of sha256sums.txt files: build-sha256sums.txt and release-
 sha256sums.txt. Or maybe build-sha256sums.txt and sha256sums.txt...
