"click verify" could check md5sums

Bug Description

Maybe it would make sense for click to check md5sums of the contained files against the provided list of md5sums in the package. Is this something that "click verify" should be doing?

"click verify" runs during "click install". There's a performance overhead involved, which might make this a nuisance for big packages on devices with slow disks.

This bug was fixed in the package click - 0.4.8

click (0.4.8) saucy; urgency=low

  * Show a proper error message if "click build" or "click buildsource" is
    called on a directory that does not exist or does not contain a manifest
    file, rather than crashing (LP: #1228619).
  * Restore missing newlines after JSON dumps in "click info" and "click
    list --manifest".
  * Tidy up use of PackageKit IDs; local:click should refer to uninstalled
    packages, while installed:click refers to installed packages.
  * Expose application names and whether a package is removable via the
    PackageKit API: the IDs of installed applications are now formed as
    comma-separated key/value pairs, e.g.
    "installed:click,removable=1,app_name=foo,app_name=bar" (LP: #1209329).
  * Rename ClickUser.__setitem__ to ClickUser.set_version and
    ClickUser.__delitem__ to ClickUser.remove; with multiple databases it
    was impossible for these methods to fulfil the normal contract for
    mutable mappings, since deleting an item might simply expose an item in
    an underlying database.
  * Allow unregistering preinstalled packages. A preinstalled package
    cannot in general actually be removed from disk, but unregistering it
    for a user records it as being hidden from that user's list of
    registered packages. Reinstalling the same version unhides it.
  * Consolidate ClickInstaller.audit_control into ClickInstaller.audit.
  * Validate the shipped md5sums file in "click verify" (LP: #1217333).
