Let me clarify this:

I totally understand digest checking items that nALFS may download as
part of its process, however, if a user has gone through the trouble of
gathering all the packages beforehand, to me, digest checking is just an
annoyance and another point of failure.  In that instance I feel that it
should be optional.
