If we decide to pull these releases based on this problem, then I'm
against making everyone re-run tests for this. Just allow people to
diff the tarballs and submit a new signature based on that.

Could we have a buildbot test for this kind of problem?
Should our rat-report bot (which I can't seem to locate in the maze
of buildbot right now) perhaps check for this?
